Embedded Search - New connectors in portal environment...


Hi Guys

The scenario is following. We have an installation of TREX 7.1 on an ERP ECC6 EHP 5. We also have a portal 7.3.

We are aiming on using Embedded Search through the portal. My 2 basic initial questions are

1 Is there a standard iView for using Embedded Search through the portal? I have seen this discussion but it doesn't mention this. BUT it must exist in a Business Pack or similar somewhere. OR is it so that it is only the iView in PLM 7 (believe it is called Search - wda_sea_qs) or something similar that works out of the box "Standard" from SAP??

2 I have laborated with the Embedded Search for this iView and added 2 non PLM Connectors (The connectors works great when running through SAP GUI via ESH_TEST_SEARCH report) BUT I have no idea how to search for these objects in the portal. Do I need to develop new resultpages for these non-PLM objects to display the results for this PLM iView as it is not PLM objects. There is an IMG setting under PLM Search to introduce new objects (it seems) but to me it looks like I need to develop and assign new portal result pages for this iView. That seems very strange as this is standard connectors we are talking about such as for example "Sales Order".

Thanks for any answer!
