Is it possible to change the location where the Smartsearch Index is being saved? i would like to save it to my own Azure Blob. and also, i would like to also make the smartsearch point to the same azure blob once the user used smartsearch

Hi Jun,

It is possible to remap Smart search indexes to another blob. You can use a code similar to the following:

var externalContainerPath = "~/App_Data/CMSModules/SmartSearch/"; // Path to Smart search index default location
AbstractStorageProvider searchProvider = new StorageProvider("azure", "CMS.AzureStorage");
searchProvider.CustomRootPath = "myCustomBlob"; // Blob storage container
searchProvider.PublicExternalFolderObject = true;
StorageHelper.MapStoragePath(externalContainerPath, searchProvider);
