You can expand the search capabilities of IBM WebSphere Portal by integrating IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search technology and configuring this technology as the default search engine in WebSphere Portal.
The IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search installation program provides setup scripts for integrating with WebSphere Portal. The script that you run, and the ways that you can integrate, depend on the version of WebSphere Portal that you use.
After you run the setup scripts, IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search can integrate with WebSphere Portal in several ways:
IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search provides a sample portlet and its source code that you can use to search enterprise search collections. You cannot deploy the content analytics miner as a portlet.
WebSphere Portal Search Center
When you run the setup scripts to integrate with WebSphere Portal, search functionality is integrated as a federated service that you can use to query enterprise search collections and other content that is available in the Search Center.
The ability to search secure collections by using the WebSphere Portal Search Center is not supported. To support document-level security, you must use the Search portlet for enterprise search collections that is deployed when you run the integration script.
WebSphere Portal Search bar
To use the more powerful IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search search functions for query
processing, you can change the default behavior of the Search bar so that all search requests
are redirected to the Search portlet for enterprise search collections.
Seed list crawlers
Configure a Seed list crawler to collect documents from WebSphere Portal servers, such as WebSphere Portal sites, IBM Web Content Manager sites, and Quickr for WebSphere Portal documents.
See the attached PDF file, Integration with WebSphere Portal, for instructions on how to set up the integration and customize WebSphere Portal for enterprise search. The PDF file includes procedures for different versions of WebSphere Portal. WebSphere Portal 8.0 requires IBM Content Analytics with Enterprise Search Version 3.0 Fix Pack 1 or a later fix pack.
OmniFind Enterprise Edition Version 9.1
The information in the attached PDF file also applies to OmniFind Enterprise Edition Version 9.1. Support for certain versions of WebSphere Portal requires the installation of a fix pack.
- Lotus Quickr Services for WebSphere Portal 8.5: Requires OmniFind Enterprise Edition Version 9.1 Fix Pack 1 or a later fix pack.
- WebSphere Portal 7.0: Requires OmniFind Enterprise Edition Version 9.1 Fix Pack 1 or a later fix pack.
- WebSphere Portal 8.0: Requires OmniFind Enterprise Edition Version 9.1 Fix Pack 4 or a later fix pack.
You can crawl content on WebSphere Portal 8.0 servers and deploy the Search portlet on a WebSphere Portal 8.0 server. However, the stand-alone search application cannot be deployed on WebSphere Application Server 8.0, which is the underlying application server for WebSphere Portal 8.0.
To deploy the stand-alone search application, you must use the application server that is embedded in OmniFind Enterprise Edition or WebSphere Application Server 7.0.
