I am using sitecore 9.0.1 with sxa 1.7.We have a requirement where we keep common components in a shared site folder. We have added a search box component which is from a partial design of a shared site folder into our APAC site folder and we want to give a search result page for a search box component which is under APAC site but it is not showing the pages under APAC site. Can anyone please explain what needs to be configured here.

Below is the image of Tenant where the shared site is tagged

enter image description here

Header is the partial design where it has search box component in it and i want to specify the search result page here which is in APAC site

enter image description here

This is how search box component shows for search result page field

enter image description here

Can anyone please help me with this.

Thank you

In order to have your shared items included in the index they have to use a template which inherits from _Searchable (/sitecore/templates/Foundation/Experience Accelerator/Search/Computed Fields/_Searchable).

In \App_Config\Modules\SXA\z.Foundation.Overrides\Sitecore.XA.Foundation.Search.Solr.config there is a computed indexfield defined that SXA uses for each item during indexing:

<field fieldName="searchable">Sitecore.XA.Foundation.Search.ComputedFields.Searchable, Sitecore.XA.Foundation.Search</field>

One other thing to note is that if not specified explicitly search results will be narrowed to the current site. You can extend it adding additional nodes to Associated Content field, otherwise in the solr index the items will have "searchable_b": false

  • Can you check if after rebuilding the sitecore index are you able to find the items in the solr index? Commented Mar 15, 2021 at 8:04
  • Yes i am able to see that.@Cristi Vulturar

  • I updated the answer to include the associated content update aswell. Can you verify if you have searchable:true in solr index after rebuild? Commented Mar 15, 2021 at 9:42
  • Associated content i have added already and can you please tell where to verify searchable:true @Cristi Vulturar
