Step 3a: Specify Publisher Information

Publish to Solr Configuration Aspire 2.1 +

In the Publish to Solr window, specify the connection information for publishing to the Solr instance.

  1. Enter the name of the publisher. (This name must be unique).
  2. Enter the description of the publisher that will be shown in the Workflow Tree.
  3. Enter the Specify Solr Update URL
    • Host and port (Not supported from version Solr 5)
      • Enter the Solr host
      • Enter the Solr port (8983 by default)
    • Complete URL
      • Enter the URL for the Solr server, it must have this format <protocol>://<host>:<port>/solr/core/update
