Selecting search engines

You must select or create at least one context-aware search engine to manage the search index.

About this task

Search engines support the search index that you configure.


  1. In the Team Artifacts view, expand the project area node, the Enterprise Extensions node, and then the Context-Aware Search node.
  2. Double-cick the Configuration node to open the search configuration editor.
    The Project Area field is populated with the project name from which you expanded the Configuration node.
  3. On the Overview tab, select one or more search engines to support this search configuration.
    If you want all the search engines to support this configuration, click Select All. If you want none of the search engines to support this configuration, click Deselect All.
  4. If no search engines are named in list of search engines, or to create a new search engine, click Create Search Engine to open the search engine editor.
    After you create the search engine and exit the editor, you can select the defined search engine to support this configuration.
