Create search engine profiles to allow api users to select specific search features
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Currently we have some hacky parameters, like cirrusUseCompletionSuggester=no, which are not officially supported by the API but let users get slightly different result sets. Create a profile parameter for the api and allow the api users to explicitly select this rather than having an undocumented parameter.

Moving forwards this seems sensible, but how does this affect the old unofficial parameters? We need to continue to support them, as I've had to point them out to a few API consumers.
