Search API

Build directly on top of the Search REST API if you want to configure your frontend completely from scratch, or if you want to use Search for a completely separate use case, like a chatbot. The Search API is a great option for you if you are looking for complete flexibility, want to build Search outside of web apps, or want to use Search in a non-JavaScript language.

Open Up New Use Cases

With the Search API, your projects can go beyond the traditional frontend experience with a search bar and results page. For example, a chatbot is a modern, interactive tool that lets your users feel heard. Combine this user-friendly frontend experience with the power of Search for a fresh, new way to get users the answers they need.

Endpoints for Universal Search, Vertical Search, and Autocomplete

The Search API has multiple endpoints so that you can utilize all of the search technology and algorithms that power Search results. Search across verticals with Universal Search or let users deep dive into one area with Vertical Search. Plus, your search bar can ping the Search API live as a user is typing to enable autocomplete.
