The regular ownCloud search in the web interface essentially only finds file names. Thanks to an integration with the powerful, scalable search engine Elasticsearch, admins can now offer a comprehensive full-text search function for ownCloud. Of course, all accruing data remains under full control without having to use external services.
When a user searches using the search bar in ownCloud, Elasticsearch returns results based on indexed files within ownCloud. The results return to the user, sorted by relevance, including shared files. In addition, the content in a text can also be used for the search. It is also possible to search results depending on authorizations of individual users.
