Extend people search with custom contacts list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to extend the default people search (that crawls the user profiles) with contacts I've put in a custom SharePoint list (a kind of external contacts list).

    My goal is that when people search for a name, results from the people search (my user profiles) and from the external contacts list appear in the search results.

    I know you have to create query rules and/or results sources but this sound confusing for me. Ofcourse i've searched on it on the internet, but a lot of solutions are for SP2010 and since search in 2013 is changed a lot, I'm looking for a clear solution for this.

    Anyone who has any information about this?
