In some cases you may want to check what has been indexed for a specific content item such as a page or block. This can be helpful to verify if an issue is related to indexing or search code.
- Get the ID of the content from the CMS.
- Get the defaultIndexName and serviceUrl values from the web.config or the app service configuration screen if a DxP Integration environment. If permissions are lacking create a new support request to obtain this info.
Note: In DxP the defaultIndexName and serviceUrl settings in the web.config do not matter, it is only the values from the Azure configuration that are used.
- In a browser enter the below using the info from the last steps.
https://<service url>/<index name>/_search?q=ContentLink.ID$$number:<ContentId>&fields=SearchText$$string
Note the field is set to SearchText$$string in this example but you can replace with another field or remove that query parameter. Also additional fields can be added with a comma like this.
