Searchlight dramatically improves the user-focused search capabilities and performance on behalf of various OpenStack cloud services.
It accomplishes this by offloading user search queries from existing API servers and indexing their data into ElasticSearch. ElasticSearch is a search server based on Lucene. It provides a distributed, scalable, near real-time, faceted, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with a RESTful web interface and schema-free JSON documents. ElasticSearch is developed and released as open source under the terms of the Apache License. Notable users of ElasticSearch include Wikimedia, StumbleUpon, Mozilla, Quora, Foursquare, Etsy, SoundCloud, GitHub, FDA, CERN, and Stack Exchange. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elasticsearch). The elastic-recheck project also uses Elasticsearch (and kibana) to classify and track OpenStack gate failures. (Source: http://status.openstack.org/elastic-recheck)
The current focus of Searchlight is to extend the search to a multi-cloud / Edge environment. The tenant can search for authorized resources and services on other providers' cloud or container platforms (see User cases). VIM and Orchestrator can use Searchlight APIs to query resource status and service requirement for their management operations.

Searchlight is an open project and we encourage contribution from everybody.
We support both developers and non-developers who want to provide input, requests for features, and bug fixes. We want to be able to move quickly without getting too bogged down in the process but still provide a rich mechanism for feature reviews as needed.

Searchlight was originally developed and released in the Kilo release of Glance as the Catalog Index Service . At the Liberty Summit, we decided to broaden the scope to provide advanced and scalable search across multi-tenant cloud resources.
