  • Hi, 

    You can't connect SharePoint Search App to REST services directly. Maybe you can connect SharePoint with BCS to those REST services. BCS cand bring that data from REST services to SharePoint content (to SharePoint lists for example). Then the data in BCS lists can be crawled by SharePoint crawler because that data it's in SharePoint content.

    Here you have a link about how to connect BCS to rest services:

    Hope it helps,

    Best regards.
