AEM AWS CloudSearch Connector

Amazon CloudSearch

is a scalable cloud-based search service that forms part of Amazon Web Services (AWS). CloudSearch is typically used to integrate customized search capabilities into other applications. For search to work, a domain in CloudSearch needs to be created and indexing needs to be setup. To accomplish this, there are many manual steps that are to be performed in CloudSearch which can be error prone and requires the extensive knowledge of a different tool.
We, at NVISH, have developed a connector which will connect AEM with AWS CloudSearch and perform operations like Indexing, Stopwords and Synonyms.

Goals and Objectives

AWS CloudSearch connector connects AEM with CloudSearch through admin page from tools tab.

This connector creates a configuration to access AWS CloudSearch under config Mgr.

Using this connector, we can add multi number of page paths which are to be indexed to CloudSearch Domain.

Using this connector, we can re-index all the pages.

Using this connector, we can add Analysis Scheme.

Using this connector, we can add Synonyms as well.

Using this connector, we can add Stopwords as well.
