On what date will Search&Promote cease to operate?

End-of-Service for Search&Promote is scheduled for August 1, 2022. On that date, the Search&Promote administrative user interface will no longer be accessible, and requests to Search&Promote APIs will no longer deliver results. Before this date, the service will be fully available and functional.

Search and other API requests made to Search&Promote will no longer return results. Requests can result in a “Host not Found” error, a 3xx HTTP redirect, or an HTTP error such as 404, 408, or other HTTP error code.

Does Adobe have alternative options for site search and commerce search?

Yes. For product and commerce search, Live Search from Magento Commerce is Adobe’s search application going forward. Live Search from Magento Commerce is targeted to launch in the first half of 2021.

Can Adobe recommend any frameworks or platforms that offer features similar to Search&Promote?

Yes. If the Search&Promote feature is critical to your marketing strategy, consider the many open-source frameworks that exist to power search, including Apache Solr and Elastic Free and Open.

Also, both AWS and Microsoft® Azure provide cloud-native search capabilities on their respective cloud platforms. You can integrate both options into Adobe Experience Manager Sites to power site search and more.
