Simulator

The Simulator provides an interactive preview of how your staged rules affect relevancy, using your search data and a simple search interface. When you enter a query, the Simulator shows you the triggered rules, in the order in which they were triggered, along with any triggered facets.

Simulator 4.x

You can edit any of the triggered rules, then re-run the query to see new results. You can also return to the query rewriting dashboard to enable or disable query rewriting strategies.

The Simulator sends requests to the _rules_simulator query profile, which you can configure to point to any pipeline and collection in your app.

Opening the Simulator
  1. In the Fusion UI, navigate to Relevancy > Query Rewriting.

    • Click Query Rewriting Dashboard to go to the dashboard, where you can enable or disable query rewriting strategies, then return to the Simulator to see how relevancy is affected
