Site Search Engine not supporting autocompleteSuggestions

Hi All,

I have code implemented with react elastic search ui component "SearchBox" to have autocompleteSuggestions.
With documentation seems this should work for all engine types. But I am stuck on achieving this feature, can anyone help on this !!

Config :
export const searchEngineConfig = {
apiConnector: searchEngineConnector,
autocompleteQuery: {
suggestions: {
types: {
documents: {
fields: ['title']
}
},
size: 4
}
}
}
};

should i try using beforeSearchCall to achieve this feature @JasonStoltz any thoughts could you help me on this ?

Hey @sarrame. Not all features are supported by Site Search in Search UI. The features are listed here: https://github.com/elastic/search-ui/tree/master/packages/search-ui-site-search-connector#search-ui-site-search-connector.

While autocomplete "autocompleteSuggestions" won't work, "autocompleteResults" will. See https://github.com/elastic/search-ui/blob/master/ADVANCED.md#properties.

There is no way to get autocompleteSuggestions to work with Site Search because query suggestions are not supported in the Site Search API.

Does that make sense?
