Configuring the Alfresco Search and Insight Engine subsystem

There is a search subsystem and it can be used to connect to Alfresco Search and Insight Engine (which is based on Solr 6).

Just like all previous versions of Solr, the activation and configuration of the Alfresco Search and Insight Engine subsystem can be done either by using the TOMCAT_HOME>/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties file or the admin console, see Configuring Alfresco Search and Insight Engine using Admin Console.

If you haven't yet set the following Solr-related properties in the TOMCAT_HOME>/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties file, add these:
### Solr indexing ###
index.subsystem.name=solr6
solr.secureComms=https
solr.port=8983
solr.host=<hostname> [The host name where the Solr instance is located]
solr.base.url=/solr

These configuration properties are used by Alfresco Content Services to talk to Alfresco Search and Insight Engine.
