Content Features

Search & Retrieve

Efficient search and indexing

Every piece of content stored in Jahia's Digital Experience Manager is silently and automatically indexed, including the content of files in such formats as PDF, Word, Excel, etc. Since Digital Experience Manager's Search is based on the powerful open-source Lucene search engine, you can perform full-text search on any kind of content.
Your administrators can adapt the "score boost factor" to improve the relevance of results, by choosing which fields are more important than others. You can define the search scope precisely for each search form, targeting either all sites, a single website, a section of the website or even just a specific list of content items.


Multi-faceted search

Online retailers pioneered the first applications of faceted search: the search based on "facets". For instance, product specifications (such as type, brand, price, etc.) which allow customers to narrow down their search using relevant filters and make the best use of the data available in the retailers' information systems.
Jahia's Digital Experience Manager brings this powerful technology to your users, generating facets dynamically based on actual search queries and guiding users through their search down to the desired information. For example, the user can search hotels by location, rating, comfort level, price or any combination of the above, generating a subset of matching results each time.

Extensibility without limits

Digital Experience Manager is a very flexible platform. If the default configurations or features of the embedded digital assets manager (DAM) do not match your needs, you can customize it to match with your exact requirements. Using rules, your developers can effortlessly tailor the platform to implement the automated tasks you need, such as document transformation (convert Word files to PDF, for instance), duplication, archiving, copyrighting, etc.

The DAM Rules module, available in the Private App Store, is a very good example of what can be achieved at a very low cost and with minimum training requirements to customize exactly as is needed.


Links integrity

When you use a file or an image in a page or even reference within a rich text, the Digital Experience Manager platform silently ensures the links are not broken, even if the file has been renamed or has moved. Thanks to this automated and transparent link management, you can work as a team with total confidence. If the original file is modified by authorized users, this will automatically updates all locations where the file is used. No need to republish pages, reselect the newest version manually and so on. Having such a powerful digital assets manager (DAM) support inside your Digital Experience Manager brings major and immediate productivity benefits to all your projects. 

Versatile queries

Unleash the full value of your data with highly customized queries to retrieve content based on just about any criteria, such as metadata, content types, tags, categories or fields. Using queries, you can have any Digital Experience Manager component display the exact subset of content you want to present to your users such as, for example, "the last 5 corporate news articles written by VP John Mayer". Any combination of query criteria is possible. The sky is the limit!
