I am using Sitecore 9.3 with SXA search components (search box, search results, filters and paging) and needs to extend this to read data from custom API.

What I have thought of is to clone the search results components and update the API calls for search box and filters. But I need to know whether there is any easier way to achieve this like only overriding the search controller?

  • What do you mean with "read data from custom api"? What do you have to achieve?

  • I need to get data from external source and append it to the search results items list that is returned from sitecore

  • Append it as extra results? Or append extra data to the result items?
