More Solr Search dashboards possibilities

More Solr Search dashboards possibilities

The Search dashboards got a series of new options and long awaited features in Hue 3.8. Here is a summary of the major improvements.

 

Regular users can now also create dashboards

Previously, only Hue admin could access the editor, which was not very practical.

Range & Up facet

Interval facets on any type of data has been supported since the first versions. However, some use cases would benefit more of range facets with one upper or lower bound open. Think like getting all the logs younger than 1 day or restaurants with ratings above 4 stars.

2D maps

The gradient map is handy for displaying the traffic by location. It now supports another dimension that way you can plot the Top Browsers, Operating Systems by country

Multiple widgets using the same fields

This feature is particularly useful for using a country code code field with several widgets or a date fields for a timeline and also a text facet. Previously each field could be used only once in a widget!

search-multi-names

 

Collection aliases

All the aliased group of collections will now appear in the list of available collections. So just pick the name like any other collection. The UI also hides the core list by default to save some space.

Enable only the Search app

Hue only uses the standard Solr API. This means that any Solr or Solr Cloud setup can also benefit from the dashboard UI. Here is how to customize Hue to only show the Search app and get started in a few clicks!

search-only

 

Export and import dashboard

Until we get the builtin support for exporting/importing any Hue documents, here is a new way to backup or move your existing dashboard to other installations.

Next!

A lot more is coming up, with a Date Widget for easily setting up a rolling timeline, more statistics and analytics facets!

Also in the pipeline is a revamp of the indexer designer for making collection index creation a 3-click operation.

Happy Searching!

    Hi,

    I like the Search App, but i wonder why it is not possible to use other aggregations then “sum” in all the widgets?

    Solr 4.8 supports nested documents.. Would it be possible to visualize these type of collections with nested documents in Hue?

      You need to make sure you have dates or number type fields in order to have certain functionality
