Overview


The CrownPeak Search G2 CMS Administration Interface enhances the existing search platform by providing a series of self-service, realtime configuration screens, available to customers and partners for management of CrownPeak Search G2 Collections:

Connector


In order to manage your Search G2 Collections, a new Search G2 Connector is added to the CMS Configuration Settings. For each Search G2 Collection that is managed, a Connetor will be created.

The new CrownPeak Search G2 Connector is available within the CMS via [Settings] [Configuration] [General Search G2]. (Figure 1)
Note: New Connectors are only configurable by CrownPeak Support.

Publishing Package Settings

To inform the CMS which Connector should be used for publishing at each workflow state, a Search G2 setting needs to be set in the Publishing Package using [Settings] [Publishing] [Package] (Figure 2).

Once the Search G2 Connectors have been created in the CMS, the collections can be accessed from [Settings] [Tools] [Search G2] (Figure 3).
