Search Back-end Engine Update

Recommended Posts

Hi all - 

On July 27th, Search will be moving all web-based searching to the updated backend engine that has been in use in the ongoing Search beta.  Any viewers or clients that point to http://search.secondlife.com will begin receiving results from the new system. The functionality will remain the same, however the results rankings will be different, as the new backend has updated algorithms for relevance.

Change details:


  1. Viewer 1 - All and Groups tabs will be moved to the new backend search engine.  They will look the same, but the results will be ranked differently. Other tabs will not be affected.
  2. Viewer 2 - Search will be moved to the new beta Search UI and backend in all versions of Viewer 2
  3. Web searches will be moved to the new backend search engine - including Classifieds, Events, and Groups.
  4. Any products using http://search.secondlife.com will begin receiving results from from the new backend.
  5. The http://search-beta.secondlife.com url will still be live, and will be running the same version as search.secondlife.com for now.  

If you run into any issues, please use the feedback link at the top of the Search beta page, or file a jira in the Web project with a component of Search.

Thank you!
- Nya
