Solr Search UI – How to configure Hue with only the Search App

Published on 12 March 2015 in - 1 minute read - Last modified on 06 March 2021

The Solr Search App is having a great success and users often wonder if they could use it without the Hadoop related apps. As the app is only using the standard Apache Solr REST API and Hue allows to customize which apps to show, the answer is yes!

Note: this is an alternative to configure the groups and application permissions directly in the User Admin.

 

1. Install Hue from the links on the ‘Download’ section menu

 

2. Only enable the Solr Search App

In the hue.ini (See ‘Where is my hue.ini'?), blacklist all the other apps:



[desktop]

app_blacklist=beeswax,impala,security,filebrowser,jobbrowser,rdbms,jobsub,pig,hbase,sqoop,zookeeper,metastore,spark,oozie

At the same time, double check Hue is pointing to your correct Solr:



[search]

solr_url=http://localhost:8983/solr/

 

Restart Hue and voila! Drag & drop widgets and build dynamic search dashboards in seconds!

Note

If you want to install the examples you could enable the indexer

Note**

The app is primarily tested on Solr Cloud mode but works on regular Solr
