Hi all, I need to Embed an external Search widget in an AEM web page. It must be searchable and results displayed within the widget. Another tab shall open when the user selects a result from the widget results. I see that AEM has an out of box External iFrame, that allows a web author to reference an external URL and create a window to display the website in an iFrame. Is this the right option? Are there any pros/cons of using this? For example, is it secure? Appreciate your support. Thanks, Rama.
I cannot really comment on this (other then what is documented) as I have never used the External component to pull in an external component to search for other content. Lets see if other ppl have ever tried this.
I have built Search components for AEM JCR and SOLR - but they are AEM components located in the AEM repository.
To address this use case - you need to write a custom AEM component that searches for content. For your component - are you planning on making it search the AEM JCR or you using another solution - like having the component search SOLR and displaying the results?.
If you are going to take the SOLR route for your search component - may i recommend that you watch this webinar:
