Quick Start

For a quick Fusion installation on your Unix host:

  1. Download Fusion.

  2. tar -xf fusion-4.0.x.tar.gz

  3. fusion/4.0.x/bin/fusion start

  4. Go to http://localhost:8764/.

    The first time you log in, Fusion automatically launches the Quickstart interface:

    quickstart 0

    You can also open the Quickstart at any time by navigating to the launcher and clicking New here? Get started…​.
  5. Click Continue.

    On the Select an App screen, you can select or create an app for your quickstart data.

    quickstart 1

    If you click Create new app, Fusion prompts you to enter an app name (and optionally a description), then click Create App to return to the Quickstart. Your new app is selected by default.

  6. After selecting an app, click Continue.

    On the Select a Collection screen, you can select or create a collection for your quickstart data. A collection with the same name as your app is created automatically:

    quickstart 2

  7. Click Continue.

    On the Index Data screen, you can either select one of the built-in sample datasets or click Use my data to upload your own:

    quickstart 3

  8. Click Continue.

    On the Query Data screen, you can see all search results and enter your own search queries to test the indexed dataset. You can also select the display fields or view the parsed documents:

    quickstart 4

  9. Click Continue.

    From here, you can do the following:

    • Open the Index Workbench to modify the index pipeline.

    • Open the Query Workbench to modify the query pipeline.

      The workbenches are essentials tools in the Fusion workflow.

At any time, you can open the Quickstart interface by navigating to the Launcher (described below) and clicking Try the Quickstart. It provides a simple way to quickly ingest a dataset before refining the index or query pipelines.
