Use this information for an overview of the filtered search capability in Alfresco Share along with its configuration
details. It also describes how to define your own custom filters.
Filtered search is a powerful search feature that allows users to filter and customize their
results by applying multiple filters to their search results in a navigational way. Filtered
search breaks up search results into multiple categories, typically showing counts for each, and
allows the user to drill down or further restrict their search results based on those filters.
Filtered search uses the Solr 4 search subsystem and is enabled by default
from Alfresco Content Services
5.0 onwards. For more
information on migrating from your existing search subsystem to Solr 4, see Upgrading search
Configuring filtered search
You can configure filtered search either by using the configuration files or by using the Share Search Manager.
