Search URL

Greetings all!

I'm working with KM 5.0 on EP 5, SP5. I've got a developer who wants to put a search box on one of her web pages and have it search a specific KM repository. She does not want to use one of the out of the box search iviews that comes with KM.

The closest that I've been able to come to providing this is the following URL:

https://qaportal.graybar.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sapportals.km.service?startpage=searchpage&configfilename=navigation.xml&resourcelisttype=com.sapportals.wcm.searchresultlist&searchtype=ctrlpers&selectedsearchin=0#

This URL is the href behind a 'Search' link that she's put on her web page. If you click on this 'Search' link, it brings up what looks like a search iview page and you can use it to search KM. However, it seems to search all KM repositories.

Does anyone know how to accomplish what this developer is wanting? How do you control which KM repositories are searched? Also, how do you modify it so that things like the 'Save as iView' button do not show up? How do you manipulate the java iView settings like you would in the 'Java' tab in the search iView?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Stephen,

    well EP5 SP5 is quite old. There are some options, but it's not very convenient to set them.

    It's possible to restrict the search according to a set of indexes (see for example note 686650).

    Additionally you can restrict your search on a certain folder.

    For this complete the URL as if you execute a 'Search from here' on a folder.

    It's easy to find the addon for the URL

    (eg. &SelectedSearchFolder=/documents&SelectedSearchFromHere=/documents)

    Hope that helps in first place.

    Kind regards Matthias Röbig-Landau

    Where did you find these parameters? Is there somewhere I can get a listing of all of the parameters and what they mean?

    • Hi Stephen,

      in EP5 SP5 you might also make use of the 'Save Search as iView' option. Unfortunately this option is out of technical reasons not supported in EP6 and higher releases.

      On this search iView you can see many of the possible parameters. Because it became too many of them we decided in EP6 (and higher) to provide a 'Search Option Set' which gathers a set of parameters and can be set for the iView.

      Regards Matthias
