By default, in Sitefinity CMS search indexes are generated and stored locally using Lucene.net search service. If your project resides on a cloud storage, you can use alternative search index generation and storage on external services - in the cloud on Azure Search or an external Elasticsearch server.
To communicate with Azure Search, Sitefinity uses Microsoft.Azure.Search 5.0.0.
To use Azure Search for Sitefinity's search indexes, perform the following:
NOTE: Keep in mind that you need to enter only the name of the search service and not the whole URL. For example, if the URL is https://test.search.windows.net, you need to enter just test as search service name.
NOTE: Search results are ordered based on @score parameter. This method returns relevance of the result for each search term. By using @score parameter, the most relevant results come first.
For more information, see Azure Search libraries for .NET.
PREREQUISITES: You must use Elasticsearch server version 5.5.0.
