Text Find & Replace Plugin

Bloomreach offers Enterprise support for this feature to Bloomreach Experience customers. The release cycle of this feature may differ from our core product release cycle. 

Introduction

Text Find & Replace Plugin allows content authors to be able to find and replace texts of documents in Advanced Search Bulk Workflow Action Operation UI.

Example Demo Implementation Scenario

A project can install this plugin to perform batch text find & replaces on CMS documents like the following example:

  • Log onto CMS and select Document search application.
  • In the search text field on the top area, search for "breakfast" for example.
  • Select some documents or all the documents from the search result.
  • Select the Perform Action / Find and Replace... menu item on the top right corner.
    Note: before version 2.1.0, this was a separate menu Text Replaces / Find and Replace Text.
  • Enter "breakfast" in the "Find" text field, uncheck the "Case sensitive" checkbox, and enter "Lunch" in the "Replace" text field as an example.
  • Click on "OK" button.
  • Check the document(s) to see if the document name or other text fields were updated as intended.
