Your collected data can be exposed by defining search interfaces. Essentially, a search interface allows you to select which collections and synonyms to combine, as well as the ability to tune and boost your search down to field level.

Interfaces table

The table will show a list of the interfaces.

Each row represents an interface.

By default a row will show:

  • An [Edit] button, to configure the interface.

  • The name of the interface.

  • How many collection that interface searches.

  • A [Search] button, to test the interface.

  • A [Copy] button, in case you want to make a similar interface.

If you toggle 'Show all fields', each row will also show:

  • Which collections that interface searches.

  • Which fields that interface searches.

  • Which Synonyms are used.

  • Which Stopwords are used.

  • A [Delete] button to open a dialog to confirm deletion of an interface.



Each interface needs a unique name.

In order to keep API’s consistent the name is limitied to the regexp /^[a-z][a-z0-9_]*$/.
If you try to input a name which is already in use, you will get a form validation error and will be unable to create or rename the interface.


You need to specify at least one collection to include in the search.


Select which fields should be searched and adjust the boosting of them.


The search string is split, by unicode boundaries, into words, then each word matching a stop word will be removed from the search string.

This all happens before the synonyms stage.

Be careful when adding stop words, it may quickly lead to an empty search string and no search results.


You may select multiple "thesauri" of synonyms to "decorate" the query with.

First any Stop-words are removed, then the remaining search string is used to query for synonyms, matches are used to decorate the main query.
