Find the Needle: Federated Search Across 100 Drupal “Haystacks”
The Digital Services team for the state of Georgia (DSGa) run a Drupal 7 platform for over 100 websites. During 2019, they began to transition those sites to a new Drupal 8 platform. Their flagship site, Georgia.gov, needs to search content from across the entire site network. While both sets of sites are hosted on Acquia and use Acquia Search, their Drupal 7 search solution could not incorporate content from the new Drupal 8 sites.
Fortunately, open source software gave them a different option. What we built is called Federated Search, and is freely available on Drupal.org. Using Drupal, Acquia Search, and React, Palantir collaborated with the DSGa and their development partners (Lullabot and MediaCurrent, respectively) to re-launch network-wide search in both Drupal 8 and Drupal 7.
In this session, we’ll explore how Federated Search integrates with Acquia Search and hosting and details for getting started using the application in Drupal 7 and Drupal 8.
