Support:Search Implementation

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The implementation for new SUMO search will run from October 20 to December 8

Refer [1]

The main bug: bug 405028

All bugs that are needed for SUMO search deployment will directly or indirectly block this bug.

General Strategy

  • The new search will be deployed in parallel to the old search, so it does not replace the old search but is an add-on.
  • The new search will be accessible in place of the old search by appending a var to the query string
  • During the test phase, on the new search results, there will be a message to say that this is a new search that is being tested, and link to go back to the old search

Major Targets

October 27: Search UI will be ready for review

November 3: Unoptimized search engine to be ready for testing on support-stage (security by obscurity will apply - you need to know the special url to get to it)

November 10: Search UI to be finalized. Performance testing begins on test cluster.

November 17: Search UI fully implemented. Testing of different search indexing weights begin.

November 26: Search will be pushed to production (0.7.3) but missing optimizations

December 15: Final optimized version of search will be on production
