Enterprise Services: The Fastest Possible Search

  Search is important. Search is also omnipresent, but “What is the fastest way to find the required information on XY with the highest possible quality”. This question mirrored to services or in the SAP context Enterprise Services brings us to “What is the fastest way to find the required information on my Enterprise Services with the highest possible quality?”  SAP provides a huge amount of documentation (= Enterprise Service Workplace (ESW)) for Enterprise Services. This vastly growing information resource is very valuable to look at, for example, when identifying the right services or retrieving information for specific services. Within this blog I’ll outline three possibilities to search for ES: The standard way, the efficient way and the +potentially+ fastest way. You may therewith highly improve the speed of your ES search. The quality on the other hand remains in your hands by means accuracy with which you define your search terms.  h4. The standard way: Enterprise Service Workplace Search  Navigate to the {code:html}Enterprise Services Workplace{code} and therein browsing according to different categories (solution maps, bundles, index, etc..) or using the integrated search field. Simply add your SAP is open and so is SAP’s ES documentation. Google crawls the ES Workplace and one can thus use Google’s (custom) search to find information on Enterprise Services. The easiest way is to add the following command to your Google search query:  *site:esoadocu.sap.com*. This command will tell Google search to only return results from the ES Workplace. Three examples:  {code:html}Find Customer by Name{code}0.1.  {code:html}Find Business Partner{code}0.1.  {code:html}Manage Material In{code} In order to increase then the quality of you search you may then add information such as *”Service Interface”*, *”Service Operation”*, *”Process Component”*, *”Data Type”* = Specialization. Adding this information will even further restrict the result list to only those elements related to the search term.As example, the “service operation” {code:html}Read Material {code} Read Materialh4. The fastest way: Command-line triggering Google’s focused ESW Search Building now on top of Google’s focused ESW Search is the command-line triggered search. This means that one uses a ‘script’-enabled browser, such as Firefox and adds specific command(s) to the browsers capabilities. Sounds difficult – but it’s actually very easy.  Here is how it works:Firefox Bookmark

      Every time that I have a result of a search and I try to see the information I have received the following error in a new page.

      "No content for "

      Could you tell me why?!?!
      Last year the same search used to work.

      Thanks in advance.
