Adobe Search&Promote is a powerful SaaS search offering within the Adobe Marketing Cloud. Adobe offers an integration between Adobe Experience Manager and Adobe Search&Promote using AEM’s Cloud Services. This integration is meant to allow authors to easily deploy and configure basic search experiences with the two tools.
Unfortunately, there is an issue with the integration where AEM will cache the Stage URL for Adobe Search&Promote’s API endpoint. While you can force Adobe Search&Promote to use the Live index with the sp_staged parameter, it will still use the Stage configuration. This is a serious problem as it means that you may be using configurations which are not tested or not ready yet to be live.
