Building Applications

Ultimately, Fusion Server is the back end for your search applications.

Fusion App Studio is a tool for developing a search interface from within the Fusion workspace, using a simple configuration wizard and an integrated code editor. You can set up a simple search interface in just minutes, and then customize it to suit your organization.

As of Fusion 5.0, App Studio is no longer included in the Fusion UI. However, you can use App Studio Enterprise to create apps for Fusion 5. See the App Studio Enterprise Download page for more information.

If you are using Fusion AI, then your application can also send signals to Fusion and retrieve recommendations to personalize each user’s search experience.
