Configure search in SharePoint 2013
Published: July 16, 2012
Learn about the two types of customization in SharePoint Server 2013 search: adding a custom word breaker and adding a custom step to modify managed properties for crawled items during content processing.
Applies to: SharePoint Server 2013
A custom word breaker can be added to tune word breaking behavior according to your needs. You can use a custom word breaker to replace the existing word breaker of the same language. Alternately, you can use a custom word breaker to replace the existing word breaker with that of a different language.
A custom step can be added to modify managed properties in the form of an external content enrichment web service. The content enrichment web service is a service that you can create to receive a callout from the web service client inside the content processing component. A configurable payload is then submitted to the web service, and the response is merged into the crawled item before it is added to the search index.
