Configuring OpenSearch

You can configure OpenSearch to use a search engine proxy.
OpenSearch is a collection of simple formats for sharing search string results, in order to extend existing schemas such as ATOM or RSS. The list of registered search engines is in /config/alfresco/web-scripts-config.xml. You can configure a search engine proxy so that the OpenSearch client indirectly submits a search request through the Alfresco Web Server (the proxy), rather than directly to the search engine.
  1. Create a new file called /config/alfresco/extension/web-scripts-config-custom.xml.

    This file will contain the search engine proxy information.

  2. Create a new search engine proxy, using the proxy attribute. For example:

    <engine label="Alfresco Open Source Talk" proxy="opentalk">
      <url type="application/rss+xml">http://blogs.alfresco.com/opentalk/
    os-query?s={searchTerms}&itemstart={startIndex?}&itempage={startPage?}
    &itemlimit={count?}</url>
    </engine> 

    The value of the proxy attribute must be a unique name that identifies the search engine.

  3. Save /config/alfresco/extension/web-scripts-config-custom.xml.
