Global search in AX 2012


My client wants a global search facility in AX 2012 R2 environment where the user can search for all possible matches against a search string- as same as we search over Google.

As the global search is no more available directly in AX 2012 as per my knowledge, can someone help me to achieve the goal please.

Many thanks,


AX2012 uses Enterprise Search instead of Global Search. Enterprise Search depends on SharePoint, but it can be used directly from the Search box in AX client. If you try to search something from AX client (and all prerequisites are met), it will simply ask the appropriate SharePoint service to do the hard work.
