Azure Search Plugin


#1

Azure Search Plugin interfaces with the Microsoft Azure Search service to provide search capabilities for any FarCry application. Azure Search is an API based implementation of the Azure Search service, and the plugin works similarly to the FarCry Solr Pro Plugin.

Easily add sophisticated cloud search capabilities to your website or application using the same integrated Microsoft natural language stack that’s used in Bing and Office and that’s been improved over 16 years. Quickly tune search results and construct rich, fine-tuned ranking models to tie search results to business goals. Reliable throughput and storage give you fast search indexing and querying to support time-sensitive search scenarios.

NOTE: This plugin is compatible with FarCry 7.x and over.

Azure Search plugin is available under LGPL and compatible with the open source and commercial licenses of FarCry Core.

Base features include:

  • config for general settings
  • a content type with records for each indexed type, and settings to configure property weighting
  • an event handler that triggers index updates on save and delete
  • a library in the application scope that encapsulates searches and index updates
