What is i14y?
The Search.gov i14y Content Indexing API allows you to send content directly from your content management system (CMS) into Search.gov for real-time indexing. By hooking into your CMS workflow, you can immediately create, update, and delete the associated documents in our search indexes via this API. Even if you don’t have a CMS, you can develop software to publish your content in a way that meets the i14y API specifications below.
Ruby/Python/Node clients are welcome.
Before you Begin
- Set-up a search site with our service via Search.gov
- Request that your search site be enabled for i14y by emailing our team.
- Set up an i14y “drawer” in our system. Full instructions are available in our help manual. You’ll give your drawer a handle, and you’ll need to enter this drawer handle in the username field below after you click the Authorize button.
- Get your i14y secret token. You’ll need to enter this token as your password. The token can be found in our system in: Search Admin Center > Manage Content > i14y Drawers, select the option Show.
Note: If you are a developer who doesn’t have access to our site configurations, please email us.
