Basic Configurations

  • Connector ID: A unique identifier for this connection i.e. simflofy_demo(Alphanumeric, dashes and underscore characters only)
  • Description: The text that will be displayed on drop-downs etc. to identify this connection.
  • Type: The type of Search Connection (Solr, Mongo, Alfresco Faceted etc.)
  • Connection URL: Your server's web address
  • Security Mode: This is how to authenticate with the back-end search
  • Username: to authenticate with
  • Password: Password to authenticate with
  • Configuration Parameters: Extra parameters that can be passed to the content service connection and vary by connection. See the section on extra query parameters below.

Connection Configuration

A query_fq configuration param lets you define facet queries behind the scene. This is done to provide limited views or subsets of data in the search. Essentially you could create any number of views on the same date but each view would display different results. This can also be used in a role base system where you have views setup for specific user roles.

The syntax is:

query_fq for the first one

query_fq1 for the second


Unless the fq is already encoded, you will need to wrap it in the encode() function where it will be URLEncoded UTF-8.
