Exposing Siebel API as Auto Search

Hello All,

I have posted multiple article on Siebel Auto Suggestion, where we get the Suggested results based on the keyword typed.

In this post i will share how we can expose Siebel REST API url to be used as Auto Suggestion result fetching.

below Video shows, where a Front End User is entering some Product Name and Siebel API sends the request to Siebel and displays the Siebel Products results.

Siebel Structure:

The Rest API of Siebel has the features where a search expression can be set and we can return a particular field or set of field.

https://<<hosturl>>/siebel/v1.0/data/Internal Product/Internal Product/?searchspec=([Name] LIKE '"+a+"*')&fields=Name", false);  // `false` makes the request synchronous

here, a is the value that will be entered in text box and passed to Siebel REST API url.

Pretty Simple :-), yet effective

Sample HTML Form
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,initial-scale=1">
<script src=""></script>
  <script src=""></script>
<body  style="background: beige;">
<div class="container">
<div id="emailcontainer">
<label>Search  a product here by entering the keywords</label>
<label for="emailaddress">Product Name</label>
<input type="" class="dataholder ui-autocomplete-input" id="emailaddress" name="emailaddress" placeholder="Email Address.." autocomplete="off">
  source: function( rqst, response ) {
       var txt='',tags='';
       var request = new XMLHttpRequest();
var a = $('#emailaddress').val();'GET', "https://<<youraddresshere>>/siebel/v1.0/data/Internal Product/Internal Product/?searchspec=([Name] LIKE '"+a+"*')&fields=Name", false);  // `false` makes the request synchronous

if (request.status === 200) {

var obj = JSON.parse(request.responseText);
var Items = obj.items;
var length = Items.length;
a = new Array();
for (var i=0;i<length;i++) {
 a[i]= Items[i]['Name'];

tags = a;
            var matcher = new RegExp( "^" + $.ui.autocomplete.escapeRegex( rqst.term ), "i" );
            response( $.grep( tags, function( item ){
            return matcher.test( item );
          }) );

This can also be implemented in Siebel UI as well, will share the details of that in upcoming posts.
