Decoupled Kit Pantheon Search API

This module automatically configures a Solr search API server for use on Pantheon environments and creates an example search index that can be accessed via a JSON:API. It can also be used with the Next Drupal Search API add-on to simplify the process of configuring search for your decoupled frontend.

Before You Begin

Before enabling the Decoupled Kit Pantheon Search API module, you will need to enable Pantheon Search on your site. You can do this by following the instructions to Enable Access to Pantheon Search in the Pantheon Search documentation.


To install the Decoupled Kit Pantheon Search API module, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Drupal admin dashboard.
  2. Go to the Extend page (admin/modules).
  3. Search for Decoupled Kit Pantheon Search API in the list of available modules.
  4. Check the box next to the module and click the Install button or run the command drush en decoupled_kit_pantheon_search in the terminal.

That's it! The Decoupled Kit Pantheon Search API module should now be installed.


The Search API Pantheon & JSON:API Search API modules will also be installed too, since Decoupled Kit Pantheon Search API depends on them.


Once installed, the module automatically creates an Example Index with the following configuration:

  • Datasources: Content

  • Server: Pantheon Search

  • Bundles: Article & Basic page

  • Index Languages: All

  • Fields:

    • Body:
      • Type: Fulltext
      • Boost: 1.00
    • Title:
      • Type: Fulltext
      • Boost: 1.50

The module also adds a JSON:API endpoint for the index to return results. Additionally, it automatically indexes content, making it an out-of-the-box option to start using the search data in frontend sites.
