    Hi,

    I would like to find out does Sitefinity 4.x search and index documents?  If not, is there a workaround for this?


    Regards,
    Adrian

    Hello Adrian,

    Documents are not included in the index. There will be a solution to do this after Q2 with the new index pipe API.

    Best wishes,

    Hi,

    "There will be a solution to do this after Q2 with the new index pipe API."

    Any news on this? Roadmap?

    By the way, I had 2 quick questions on indexing:

    - Do inserted, updated or deleted items automatically trigger an index update? So that I do not have to manually reindex everything regularly.
    - Do the Sitefinity APIs (like the fluent one) automatically use indexes when they're available, or do indexes have to be called explicitly?

    Thanks.

    Hello Thomas,

       There is a sample pipe that index  txt documents and it is in the  sample project in this post and you can use it as a base pipe  for pipes that will index specific documents or extend it. Right now it is not on our Roadmap for the next release.  

        And the answers for the questions : 

    The fluent API  calls the publishing system automatically. Nevertheless we have a problem now when you try to publish or delete an item with specific facades. If you are using 

    App.WorkWith().AnyContentItem<T> it will work fine and will call the publishing system (this includes the search also since it is built upon the publishing system) for any action like Delete,Create,Unpublish or Publish. 
    All the best,
    Teodor
