Switching between Episerver Find and Custom SearchProvider


Is it possible to switch between EpiFind and custom SearchProvider or even have both? Let say if EpiFind can't return a result, I can use custom SearchProvider to look somewhere else I configured it to search for.

Technically yes, you can just create a search provider that wraps both - search using Find first then search using your specific one if no result is returned Adding search providers (CMS 8) | Optimizely Developer Community

However if you should do that, is another question. it creates quite unnecessary complexity. Can you include your data "somewhere else" in Find as well?

Hi Quan Mai, Thank you for the feedback. The last sentence is hypothetical only.
