ElasticSearch as a Seach Engine for our Intranet Site

Hi, I am new here, just joined this group!

We are looking for a new Search Engine for our Intranet site. Can
ElasticSearch be used for Crawling, Indexing and Searching Intranet type
sites? We will need to crawl/index our web pages within Intranet, documents
(PDF's Word etc) plus potentially Database indexing and then provide a user
interface where our internal user base can search and show results. Thanks.

Elasticsearch doesn't really do any of that. Its more a building block for
implementing this stuff. For instance, MediaWiki has a plugin
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CirrusSearch to implement its
search using Elasticsearch. I'm sure there are other examples but I happen
to work on the MediaWiki one so I have the link on hand.

Ok, thanks. So I guess it can't crawl or index but can serve as a Search
tool maybe through Plugin. Is there any combination of tools or any other
Open Source Search Engine that can serve the need? Thanks.
