The following page describes the known issues with Acquia Search.
The following issues affect all versions of Acquia Search:
For more information, see Issues with large attachments and Solr search in the Acquia Support Knowledge Base.
Acquia Search is hosted within Acquia’s shared virtual private cloud (VPC). Although you can access Acquia Search from your Shield applications, the Acquia Search servers are located outside of your Shield dedicated section. Due to the Acquia Search servers’ location, Shield does not protect your search index. For more information about how Acquia uses VPCs, see Virtual Private Cloud.
Advanced search functionalities, such as Acquia internal backups and select all
queries, may fail if the dynamic field
sort_X3b_* has class type defined as
solr.ICUCollationField, and contains unicode characters from Eastern
European languages. This will not affect regular indexing and search operations.
For more information, see the Solr ticket.

The Search API module provides fewer configuration options than ApacheSolr integration in Drupal 7.
The Search API module can’t display result snippets—the full node output displays as the search result.
Workaround: Create a Search result view mode to output something smaller than the full node. To add the workaround, complete the following steps:
Go to Structure > Content types > Article > Manage display.
In the Custom display settings section, select the Search result highlighting input checkbox.
Go to Structure > Content types > Article > Manage display > Search result highlighting input. The following settings control each search result’s output.
To display result snippets, edit the appropriate field. For example, to make the Body field display result snippets, complete the following steps:
In Format, click Trimmed.
Click the gear icon. The webpage displays the Trimmed limit field.
In the Trimmed limit field, enter
200 to trim the body
field to 200 characters.
You have now configured the Body field to display trimmed output as the search result.

Views exposed filters, such as search results and blocks with facets, must not have caching enabled alongside AJAX. For more information, see Ajax facet block seems to lose views context on Drupal.org.
Acquia Search indexes content types, when that is not the intended behavior.
Workaround: Add a content type filter to an Acquia Search view.
