Can you create a balsalmiq sketch of the key aspects of your design? That might help people understand the problem you are trying to solve.

elastic search should be particularly appropriate if you have rapidly evolving data.

The other thing you'll need to worry about a bit is if the query includes multiple terms, you should consider how to rank retrieved documents. Search engines devote considerable attention to this ranking function for good reason: simply finding all documents with matching terms may not be enough to surface the good matches.

comment Optimal page content for search page with no query?
It would be helpful to know more about the kinds of users you have, and the kinds of searches they are likely to do. Can you include that in the question?

It sounds like the perennial challenge of getting people to recognize capabilities of the system that extend beyond their previous experience. How can we get people out of their ruts to see if additional tools might help them with their tasks?

Does that have to do with their tasks not matching the UI, them making do with established tactics, or lack of clarity about what the UI could do? Or some combination? :-)
