    Query Profiles

    Query profiles let you consistently point your search application at a static endpoint, but give you the flexibility to change the actual query pipeline being used (and optionally, the collection and/or configuration parameters for the query pipeline).

    For example, an e-commerce site might want to create a query pipeline to support a month-long promotion. After the query pipeline is configured, it can be easily enabled by changing the query profile in use by the front-end application to use the new pipeline.

    To run a query through a query profile, use the REST API as described below. For CRUD operations, you can use either the REST API or the Fusion UI.

    Rules Simulator query profile

    The Rules Simulator allows product owners to experiment with rules and other query rewrites in the _query_rewrite_staging collection before deploying them to the _query_rewrite collection.

    Each app has a _rules_simulator query profile, configured to use the _query_rewrite_staging collection for query rewrites instead of the _query_rewrite collection. This profile is created automatically whenever a new app is created.

    Query profiles in the REST API

    • Query Profiles API (/query-profiles)

      Create, read, update, and delete query profiles.

    • Query API (/query)

      Run a query through a query profile by specifying the profile ID and appending the request with a Solr query string, as in /api/query/<id>?<solrQuery>.

    Query profiles in the UI

    Query profiles are configured at Querying > Query Profiles.
