    UI tour

    The Managed Fusion UI gives you easy access to all Managed Fusion features.

    The UI service utilizes the API service, so each UI feature has an API equivalent. For programmatic access to the features you see in the UI, see the API Reference Guide.

    The Managed Fusion workspace

    You can reach the Managed Fusion workspace by clicking on any app in the launcher. When you enter the Managed Fusion workspace, you find all the tools you need to configure the selected app:

    • On the left side are the app tool menus, where you can find tools for working with your app.

    • System-wide tools are at the top of the UI. With the exception of the Collections tool, which allows you to switch between collections for your app, these tools do not concern your app specifically.

    App tool menus


    On the left side of the screen are six menus where you can find tools for working with your app:

    1. Indexing Indexing (getting data in)

      The Index Workbench is the primary tool for getting data into your app through the Managed Fusion UI. It provides an all-in-one view of the components of a datasource. You can also access those components individually through this menu.

    2. Querying Querying (getting data out)

      For getting data out, the Query Workbench is the main tool. It shows you a live preview of search results while you configure and fine tune your query pipelines.
