Islandora Solr Search Build Status


Islandora Solr provides a highly configurable interface to perform Solr queries and display Solr data in different ways.


This module requires the following modules/libraries:


Install as usual, see this for further information.


Set the 'Solr URL' and select a 'Request handler' in Administration » Islandora » Solr Index (admin/islandora/search/islandora_solr).


Islandora Solr Search offers many more configuration options in Administration » Islandora » Solr Index » Solr settings (admin/islandora/search/islandora_solr/settings).

Configuration of the labels attached to the Islandora Simple Search can be done via the block's configuration settings.

Islandora Solr Search also implements the Islandora Basic Collection solution pack's query backend to drive the collection display using Solr instead of SPARQL/Fedora. This functionality can be applied on the collection solution pack's configuration page (admin/islandora/solution_pack_config/basic_collection), and that same page provides settings for sorting the Solr collection view globally and per-collection. The query backend relies on the relationship fields in the "Required Solr Fields" section of the Solr settings; the fields in that section should be confirmed before using Solr to drive the display.


To enable breadcrumbs, browse to Administration » Islandora » Configuration and choose Islandora Solr under Breadcrumb generation. Configuration

Q. Why are some dates not rendered correctly?

A. On 32 bit systems, the PHP function strtotime() has a limited range. Typically from Fri, 13 Dec 1901 20:45:54 UTC to Tue, 19 Jan 2038 03:14:07 UTC. For more info see this.

Q: Why can't I connect to Solr via https?

A: The Apache Solr PHP Client that we use does not support https connections to Solr. ISLANDORA-646 seeks to remedy this.

Q: Advanced search on PID worked in 6.x. Why do I get no results for the same search in 7.x?

A: In 7.x the colon in a PID must be escaped (i.e., islandora:34 becomes islandora:34) or the entire query must be wrapped in quotation marks (i,e., "islandora:34").
