I have a completely basic question. I'm not sure which part of elastic makes sense for us. I've been all around the web reading articles and the elastic.co site and I think I'm missing something.
So, we need a search box on our Drupal-based website that will return search results from various sources:
Confluence wiki documents (public)
the Drupal site itself
help tickets, etc
None of these sources will be all that big.
Seems like Elastic Cloud with Elastic Enterprise Search is the way to go for us. But I got a bit confused over the choices in Enterprise Search, which consists of the 3 parts:
Site Search (webcrawler)
My questions -
Is it true that Workplace Search is really for a company-internal use? I see the confluence connectors for workplace search, but we wouldn't use WS to hook up to our seach bar on our website, right?
So that makes me think app search is the way to go.
I set up Engines in App Search, but I do not see connectors to Confluence.
So now I'm wondering if we even need "connectors". Can we can just use Site Search to webcrawl the Confluence wiki, and also the sources as well, since the content sources will not be huge.
ON my Elastic cloud trial, I set up an App Search engine and tried crawling. Now once I have this set up in the Elastic Cloud, how do I get that into my Drupal search box?
hi there @tonyfam your best starting point here would be to go with App Search. Site Search is a separate offering on a different platform. App Search can cover your site search use cases with the engine embedded web crawler. For the Confluence wiki may I ask if you're using Confluence Cloud or Confluence Server?
