Search Experiences

Liferay Enterprise Search (LES) Subscribers

The Liferay Enterprise Search Experiences app includes a suite of features granting fine-grained control over the end user’s search experience. As the search administrator you can use Search Experiences for search customizations varying in complexity:

  • Make minor tweaks to Liferay’s default search page behavior

  • Override the search page behavior completely

  • Configure context-aware search results based on attributes of the search user

Search Blueprints

Search Blueprints is the first feature in the Search Experiences application. To learn about it’s capabilities and fundamental components, see

Getting Liferay Search Experiences

Liferay Search Experiences will be made available to Liferay DXP customers with a Liferay Enterprise Search subscription in Liferay DXP 7.3 and 7.4:

  • Starting with Liferay DPX 7.4 Update 5 (see more about updates here), Search Experiences is a bundled application, like all the LES apps.

  • In Liferay DXP 7.3, Search Experiences will be made available to LES subscribers through the Customer Portal as an add-on application. Check Liferay Enterprise Search for Liferay DXP 7.3 for availability.

Search Experiences REST API

The Search Experiences applications publish and consume REST API endpoints (under the path search-experiences-rest) to remain consistent with Liferay’s other native applications.

Warning

It is not advisable for third party code to consume the Search Experiences APIs as they are volatile: this includes the /search endpoint which is only intended to be used by the Blueprints preview feature. Schema changes are expected to happen as the features evolve, and Liferay will not support custom code that uses the Search Experiences APIs. This decision may change in the future as the APIs become more stable.
