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 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 is available to Liferay DXP customers with a Liferay Enterprise Search subscription in Liferay DXP 7.3, and bundled with Liferay DXP in Liferay 7.4. Check the LES Compatibility Matrix for details:
Fix Delivery Method
DXP 7.4 Update 5+
DXP 7.3 Update 6+
Downloaded and Installed (steps below)
In Liferay DXP 7.3, Search Experiences is available as an add-on application to LES subscribers:
Download the app from the Customer Portal.
Install the application into Liferay DXP
If running a Liferay bundle, copy the LPKG into the
[Liferay Home]/deployfolder. If Liferay isn’t running you can copy it directly to
[Liferay Home]/osgi/marketplacebefore starting Liferay.
If running a Liferay Docker container, install the LPKG in one of the supported ways.
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.
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.
