Adding a search function to page viewer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using the page viewer web part to embedded shared drives in sharepoint. However, I am struggling with the search function. I created a "search service application" for a shared folder, so it will be indexed. I can add that folder to my site using the page viewer web part. But, I can't figure out how to make it searchable.

  • Hi TechHazard,

    Do you run full crawl? Can you search this folder somewhere else? Can you search for this folder elsewhere? For example, in the search center.

    I did tests in my environment, but everything was fine.

    Looking forward to hearing from you

    Best regards

  • I want to be able to add a search box that only searches that folder. The goal is to use Sharepoint instead of mapped drives and file explorer.
