todo.png Optimizing browsers to search within the Deployment wiki

Authors: GrantCovell

This page describes how to optimize different browsers to search within the Deployment wiki.

Chrome

The Chrome browser permits adding keywords in the address bar or omnibox to facilitate searches at specific sites using the sites' own search engines.

To enable this for the Deployment wiki, navigate to Settings > Search > Manage search engines... In the "Other search engines" section where the empty boxes show "Add a new search engine", enter "Jazz.net Deployment wiki" in the first box, "deploy" in the second box and "https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Deployment/WebSearch?search=%s&scope=text" in the third box.

Now you can search directly on the Deployment wiki site from within the Chrome address bar or omnibox. Type "deploy" (or the keyword you chose in the step above) then a space and then the search terms you are looking for.

(These instructions were validated in version 27.0.1453.110 m.)

Firefox

The Firefox browser permits adding keywords in the address bar to facilitate searches at specific sites using the sites' own search engines.

To enable this for the Deployment wiki, navigate to the Deployment wiki Web Search page https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Deployment/WebSearch. In the search box, right click to show the "Add a Keyword for this Search..." dialog and in the Keyword box enter "deploy".

Now you can search directly on the Deployment wiki site from within the Firefox address bar. Type "deploy" (or the keyword you chose in the step above) then a space and then the search terms you are looking for.

(These instructions were validated in version 17.0.6.)

Internet Explorer

Even though the search provider capability is xml based, we can't find a way to enable it for IE without running a script or editing a registry key. At this point if you want to add an IE search provider, you will need to find a site online which can configure and run the script for you in your browser. We're still looking into ways to activate this functionality non-intrusively.
