Getting Started with the inSided Federated Search Integration

  • Updated

You can integrate Skilljar with the inSided community platform through the federated search integration that allows users to simultaneously search through your Skilljar courses and inSided content, allowing for ease of information all in one place. Here’s a quick overview of the benefits of this integration: 

  • Show Skilljar courses in your inSided live-search dropdown and search results page
  • Directly navigate to a Skilljar course from the community.
  • Filter the search result pages between inSided community results and your Skilljar course content.
  • Course visibility rules set up for groups on Skilljar Dashboard will apply to the search results users see on inSided.

This quick guide will walk you through the inSided integration set up and how to activate federated search within the inSided platform. 

Note: To integrate inSided with Skilljar, you must be logged in as a Community Manager or Administrator on inSided.
