Writing Custom Search

When writing a custom search, the configuration file that has the query, does it needs to be written manually, or is there a tool in workbench we can leverage to generate the configuratin file?

Also is there any sample file that we can leverage for the custom search?


Are you talking about creating a custom search in the Workbench?
UI Elements Design -> Content Explorer -> Searches -> Custom
or some other area.
What configuration file are you looking for?

Yes…I meant the configuration file similar to sample1.xml for the field: “Custom search Url field”.

You can create a new application and create a resource similar to the sample1 resource from sys_cxCustomSearch. Modify the resource to produce the results you want. The results should confirm to the View.dtd.
Before even you do that, may I know the reason for creating the custom search?
