Summary

This extension provides search results for AWS API references and the AWS CloudFormation reference, and opens the official AWS documentation page when you select an item by pressing Enter.

You can start searching by typing the keyword aws into the searchbar, followed by a space, which will select the AWS search extension. Everything you now type will search through the included indices of the AWS API documentation, although you can also search for aws-cli documentation by prefixing your query with the @-sign and through the AWS CloudFormation documentation by prefixing your query with the :-sign.

You can find detailed information in the official README on GitHub: https://github.com/pitkley/aws-search-extension.

Automatic/manual search-index updates

The AWS search extension uses pre-built indices to provide fast search results without having to perform any network requests. By default the extension will update the indices automatically, at most once a day.

You can disable automatic index updates by clicking on the AWS search extension icon in your browser's extension area and deactivating the "Enable automatic index updates" option.

You can also update the used search-indices by activating the AWS search extension, typing "!update" and hitting Enter. The latest indices are then downloaded and imported automatically, within a few seconds.
