So you want to upload configuration files Solr can use to properly function and make your application a screaming success.
The cat is happy to hear this. There is nothing the cat likes more than to put Continue reading
This will be a short one. At least the cat hopes so.
The question of how to change a date from something like 2020-04-01 into something less foolish (like 2020-04) came up recently and I couldn’t help but feel the pull of a simplistic solution (simple as well, but simplistic was the draw). This is something that is applicable to numerous scenarios where a string and its composite parts might be better off being rearranged (kind of like kaleidoscope without all the colors).
Yes, my example is going to be trivial.
No, the cat is not happy with that.
Yes, I am doing it anyway.
With the advent of Solr 6.5 we have (drum roll, please) multi-term synonym support! Yes! Do that happy dance, but remember not to scuff up the floor too much.
Let’s run through a trivial example to show it off. Continue reading
Fusion 3.1, everybody! The following may or may not work on past, or future, versions of Fusion.
Don’t have it? Go get it! Don’t make the cat do all the work.
Question: How do I use the Fusion REST Query index pipeline stage to add additional metadata to an inbound document?
Answer: This assumes the existence of a Solr collection with metadata and that Fusion knows of its existence (that means either use the default Solr cluster that runs within Fusion or make sure that the external Solr cluster you are using is registered with Fusion).
The basic steps:
So how do you configure the Database connector to connect and crawl a SQL Server 2008 R2 database? I’m glad you asked. We can do this the easy way or the hard way. I always opt for the easy way even if it is harder.
So there I was, minding my own business, surfing the web reading about technology, clouds, development environments
and fuzzy handcuffs when I found this absolutely incredible and much needed post on the LucidWorks Knowledge Base:
I will vet the steps and discuss this in a future post, but this is a major find. If you try it, let me know what you ran into and if it left a mark.
The cat is ecstatic. The box suddenly doesn’t feel so bad.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

The cat isn’t real, but then neither are you. Enjoy your search responsibly.
This is going to be a short one. I’m on the road and I feel compelled to just get one out. Kind of like a hairball only more useful.
Let’s explicitly state a few assumptions.
Solr supports the creation of dynamic fields. Continue reading
