In our Sitecore 9.2.0 solution, I want to present data from a microservice to the editors. The editors should be able to browse and select one or more items from the microservice.
My initial idea was to create an index for the content from the microservice and then create a custom field that supports browsing and selecting content from the index.
Unfortunately, I have not found any information on how to create a Sitecore content field, that enables querying/select data from an index (SOLR/Azure). Does anyone have any experience with a scenario like this?
iframefield type. This is a flexible field type and easy to implement. I wrote a blogpost about the basics few years ago: trnktms.com/2017/04/06/sitecore-iframe-field-basics. This does not solve your problem directly but can be a good starting point.
