Title
(EN) UNIFIED SEARCH TOOL FOR AN APPLICATION USER INTERFACE
Abstract
(EN)

A system can receive input data from an application running on a computing device of a requesting user. The input data can correspond to a set of alphanumeric characters provided in a search box presented on a user interface of the application. In response to receiving the input data, the system can execute a federated search by providing search data corresponding to the set of alphanumeric characters to multiple search engines operated by the computing system, each search engine pertaining to a specific service option of multiple service options that are accessible via the application. The system can obtain and process search results from the multiple search engines based on the search data in accordance with a unification protocol to generate a unified search result. The system may then transmit data enabling the application to present a selectable user interface feature for each result of the unified search result.
