    Various Umbraco Heartcore Questions (Index + Search, Publishing Workflows, Preview, Audit Trail)

    I am comparing various CMS options and I have some questions about Heartcore. Specifically:

    • Indexing / Searching Can you search against the content using a custom Lucene query like you can with normal Umbraco? Can you create custom indexes (if so, how)?
    • Publishing Workflows From what I understand, plugins can't be installed to Heartcore. Does this mean more advanced publishing workflows (like those possible in Plumber) are not possible? Are the basic Umbraco workflows still possible?
    • Preview Is there still a preview button in Heartcore, or some standard way of accomplishing previews (given the frontend is very much decoupled from the back office)?
    • Audit Trail Does Heartcore come with the basic audit trails that are part of Umbraco (e.g., to view changes to content and media)? Is it possible to extend this (I would assume not, since plugins aren't allowed)?

    Hi Nicholas

    Let me first clarify that it's not possible to extend any of the functionality that Heartcore comes with as it's a SaaS product and it's intended to be used "as is".

    You can read about the search endpoints here -

    You can only use the default Umbraco workflows.

    Preview exists, as a separate API endpoint for REST. GraphQL takes a preview boolean argument and then returns the data you've selected.

    Heartcore comes with the default audit trial. It's not possible to extend it.

    Here's a Heartcore webinar I've recorded if you want to know more -

    Hope this helps :)

    That answers most of my questions, thanks!

    I do have a follow up question. Does the Heartcore UI facilitate preview in any way? For example, a preview button that then opens up a URL on a separate domain (or somehow disambiguates it from the live site, such as via query string or cookie)?

    Yes, there's a UI for it.

    Here's a short clip of the section -
