Calling a second search API via Endeca?
We are integrating OCC and CPQ, which provide us with two search methods. OCC’s search handles basic catalog lookup and guided selling. CPQ’s search takes a specific part number or partial part number and returns the OCC product family ID.
Our question is, how would we integrate the two searches? Right now we offer two searches, a site search (OCC) and a Part Number Search (CPQ). This is not suitable because it 1) is confusing to users and 2) results in two different user experiences that are similar but have different outcomes.
Is it possible to integrate the CPQ search with Endeca? Can we use some logic to determine when to pass a query to Endeca and when to send it to CPW Land?
