The riak_search OTP application provides with the capability to act as a text search engine similar to Apache’s Lucene. Previously Riak Search was a release in it’s own right. Since then Basho has decided it would be easier for our users if Search was simply a set of functionality that can be enabled via a config option. For that reason, if you want to use Search you’ll have to build a Riak release and enable it.

Enabling Search

In order to enable the riak_search app in your Riak cluster you have to modify the etc/app.config file. Search for the text riak_search and then change {enabled, false} to {enabled, true}. The Search portion of your app.config will look something like this.

{riak_search, [
               {enabled, true},
