I'm using the latest version of Find (13.0.1) and we will soon begin migrate off Ektron and into EPi
Our existing Ektron site has been indexed in Find, and we are using it as our search engine for now.
We have our new episerver intance being indexed into the same index as our Ektron content.
I can't seem to find a way to pull our ektron pages into our new epi search results page.
I thought I could use unified search, but it is only pulling in content from the Epi side of the index.
I'm just using a really basic controler that doesn't have any filters applied at this time:
var viewModel = new SearchPageViewModel(currentPage, q);
var unifiedSearch = SearchClient.Instance.UnifiedSearchFor(q);
viewModel.SearchResults = unifiedSearch.GetResult();
Any suggestions as to how I can pull in these search results so we don't loose functionality as we move sites over to Epi?
You have to use Type Search. I don't believe Unified Search works with Ektron content (I could be wrong).
I assume you have installed the Ektron CMS FIND nuget package in your solution? That's the only way to search for Ektron content in FIND.
I tried to install the Ektron.CMS.Find nuget pacakge in my EPiServer instance and it blew up. So it is difficult for me select the ektron classes unless I were to somehow fake the system out I suppose.
I apologize, I misunderstood. I thought you are trying to display Ektron content in a Ektron website using Episerver Find. I havent done what you are trying to do here. Do you see that content in the index? Does it have a type?
We do have our Ektron site indexed, The types are
Hello, were you able to get this working? I am looking to do something similar and was wondering if it was possible to configure Find on Ektron to search both our Episerver content as well as our Ektron content as we migrate our site slowly away from Ektron.
Nope, not at all.
Oh what did you end up doing if you don't mind me asking? So you were originally able to add content from Ektron and Episerver to the same index in Find but were not able to get search results from both of them together?
