Class Outline

What’s New in SharePoint 2013 Search – a Practical Overview
SharePoint 2013 has a lot of new Search features and capabilities - first and foremost the new architecture. In this part, we’ll overview these capabilities, including the UI as well as query and content processing.

Content Processing
In this part, we’ll walk through the steps of content processing, and will go deep into the crawling and indexing. We’ll overview the various crawling options (full, incremental, continuous) and how each of them works and what are the pros and cons of each. Also, we’ll use PowerShell to extend the crawling capabilities available on the Admin UI.

As a next step after getting the content crawled, it’s important to talk about metadata and Search Schema. You’ll get an understanding how it works, how to use them in practice, and also we’ll demonstrate some PowerShell script again, to work with crawled and managed properties. As the last step in this part, we’ll work with result sources.

Working with Queries
In order to get the proper results, we have to know how to build the query and how they’ll get processed. In this part of the webinar, we’ll see not only how to build up the proper queries but also how to test them and how to get different result blocks on the Search UI. We’ll create Query Rules and Query Block and will use the Query Builder. Also, we’ll work with ranking models and will create our custom one.

UI Customization
SharePoint 2013 provides a next generation of Search User Interface with the new Display Templates for its customization. In this part, we’ll focus on the customization of Core Results Web Part and Refinement Panel  including: create new refiners, display item counts, display custom managed properties on the Core Results, etc.

Search Administration
SharePoint 2013 Search Administration can be done on different levels: besides using Central Administration and PowerShell, search administrators can delegate some day-to-day administration tasks to site collection and site administrators. In this part, we’ll go through these features and will build up a comparison of the different levels of search administration.

Search Troubleshooting on different levels
Search troubleshooting has been always complex, mostly due to the complex architecture of Search. This part is all about best practices in troubleshooting, on each level of search, from crawling to the UI. We’ll use Developer Dashboard and PowerShell, and we’ll give you detailed explanation and step-by-step guidance for each scenarios.
