I have a DXA 2.1 application that uses elastic search module. The module stores the tcm id of an image and an internal link to a component on another page.

Using this page, Handling an image in a Multimedia Component

I used all three methods described there but my images are not being rendered as expected. given a tcm id, how can I resolve to images and internal component links?

  • What is the “Elastic Search Module” you are referring to, exactly? Jun 28, 2019 at 7:21
  • The documentation topic you refer to is about old-style (CM-side) templating. DXA uses a Dynamic Delivery architecture, where CM-side templates render raw data (JSON) and the “real templating” (rendering) is done on Delivery side (in your MVC Web Application). Jun 28, 2019 at 7:24
  • @RickPannekoek the elastic search module I'm referring to is si4t search module using elastic search. Elastic search stores the tcm id of images and links currently but when I perform a search I need to be able to resolve those links and display the content appropriately. Is there a way to use the tcm id to be able to display images and link resolve components? Jun 28, 2019 at 12:57

Did you have a look at the DXA Search Module? This Module provides SI4T-based Search functionality to a DXA-based Web Application. It comes with support for Solr and AWS CloudSearch OOTB, but allows adding other Search Providers.

As a matter of fact, an ElasticSearch integration has also been created: https://velmuruganarjunan.wordpress.com/2018/09/10/tds-event-presentation-si4t-based-elasticsearch-integration-for-sdl-tridion-web-8-with-dxa-2-0/

Or is that maybe what you are referring to?

Do I understand correctly that your problem lies in embedded images and Component Links in the search results? So, you want to post-process the Search results to resolve Component Links?

In general, the DXA Framework provides a Link Resolver for the purpose of resolving Component Links (to either a published page containing the Component or the published binary data of a MM Component).

  • Thank you! The link resolver reference you shared solved my issue. I am indeed using the DXA Search module with a custom elastic search extension. Jun 28, 2019 at 16:26
