The Solr module (full name Magnolia Solr Search Provider Module) allows you to use Apache Solr, a standalone enterprise-grade search server with a REST-like API, for indexing and crawling Magnolia content, especially if you need to manage assets in high volumes (100,000+ DAM assets).
The module (parent) consists of five submodules. The first two – Content Indexer and Solr Search Provider – are required for correct functioning of the Solr search feature.
|Indexes Magnolia workspaces. It can also crawl a published website.|
|Provides templates for displaying Solr search results on a site and faceted search components.|
|Provides a Solr container for list, search and thumbnail views in content apps.|
|A bundle containing the Content Indexer, Search Provider and Solr Workbench modules, together with third-party libraries and sample Solr configuration files |
For the removal of the old, pre-2.0 version of the Content Indexer module and Solr module configuration.
Version 2.0 of the Solr module didn't support migration from the older version. The older version had to be uninstalled first.
Maven is the easiest way to install the modules. Add the following dependencies to your bundle:
<dependency> <groupId>info.magnolia.solr</groupId> <artifactId>magnolia-content-indexer</artifactId> <version>5.2.1</version> </dependency>
<dependency> <groupId>info.magnolia.solr</groupId> <artifactId>magnolia-solr-search-provider</artifactId> <version>5.2.1</version> </dependency>
<dependency> <groupId>info.magnolia.solr</groupId> <artifactId>magnolia-solr-workbench</artifactId> <version>5.2.1</version> </dependency>
Pre-built jars are also available for download. See Installing a module for help.
If you install with JAR files, include the dependent third-party libraries.
