More with Plate

Search Engine

All data stored on the DXP must be quickly and easily searchable. Plate contains a native integration with Elasticsearch that you can use through the different expressions (on DXP, WCMS and CMS level). The search function on this site also uses Elasticsearch.



Elasticsearch is software that helps to quickly search through many and various types of data and perform analyses on them. Elasticsearch searches through your website data, but also through files such as PDFs. And the software does that very cleverly. As a developer, you can set up Elasticsearch to deal with uncertain data. This ensures that website visitors still get relevant search results if they misspell a search term. What's more, Elasticsearch is - as the name suggests - an elastic system. In other words: scalable.
