Search

With data sources added and crawled, your app now has indexed data. You can search.

Search for documents

Search for documents by entering a search term or phrase in the search box:

Search Box

Type a word or phrase, and then press Enter to search for documents that match whatever you type.

View suggested query completions or documents

You can configure the Search Box module to display suggestions below the search box while the user types a query. Choose among showing Documents, Query Completion, and No Suggestions. Site Search finds suggestions by autocompleting what the user types and using those terms as queries.

Suggested results

Use the Up-Arrow and Down-Arrow followed by Enter to choose a suggested result. Or click the suggested result. For a Web crawler data source, this will take you to the web page.

Narrow and broaden search results

To narrow search results after performing a search, a user can:

  • Perform a new search with a more restrictive search query.

  • (If tabs are present) Click a tab other than All.

  • (If facets are present) Click one or more facets.

To broaden search results after performing a search, a user can:

  • Perform a new search with a less restrictive search query.

  • (If tabs are present) Click the tab All.

  • (If facets and breadcrumbs are present) Click a facet’s breadcrumb, which unselects the value that was chosen for that facet.

  • (If facets are present, but not breadcrumbs) Perform a new search with a less restrictive search query.

  • (If breadcrumbs are present, but not facets) Click the breadcrumb for the search query, which clears the search query and returns all documents.

Here is an example:

Breadcrumbs

In this example:

  • Clicking the breadcrumb with synonyms clears the search query. If no facets are selected, all documents are returned. If facets are selected, all documents that satisfy the facets are returned.

  • Clicking the breadcrumb with Product and lucidworks-cloud unselects the chosen value lucidworks-cloud for the facet Product. All documents that satisfy the search query and any remaining facet choices are returned.

Page through search results

Search results are paginated. A page control is at the bottom of the Search page:
