The Fusion UI

The Fusion UI provides a graphical interface to Fusion’s REST APIs. To access it, point your browser to http://localhost:8764/, or the host on which the UI Service is running.

The first time you log in to the UI, you’ll be prompted to create an admin account.

Note
Save your admin credentials. There is no password recovery system in Fusion.

Whenever you log in to Fusion (and it’s not the first login), the Launcher lets you choose a context for your workflow:

  • The Search context provides all the tools you need to get your data into Fusion and develop a search-ready back end for your application.

  • The Analytics context gives you access to Fusion’s dashboard application, where you can customize your view into system metrics and search activity.

  • Use the Devops context to administrate and monitor the Fusion system.

Since the Fusion UI is just an interface to the REST API service, you can also use the APIs to do almost anything that the UI can do.

Tip
When entering configuration values in the UI, use unescaped characters, such as \t for the tab character. When entering configuration values in the API, use escaped characters, such as \\t for the tab character.
