The LucidWorks Enterprise Administration User Interface provides easy, web-based access to configuring content for indexing, scheduling tasks, and configuring fields and settings.
The interface is designed to provide intuitive access to settings and configuration options. If the installation was completed with the prompted defaults, the GUI can be accessed at http://localhost:8989/. By default, a login screen will be presented.
LucidWorks Enterprise ships with one pre-configured user which has access to all installed components (Admin UI, Search UI and Alerts). The pre-configured user name is "admin". The default password is available in the README.txt file found in the home directory of the LucidWorks Enterprise installation. Changing the password is possible with the Users API.
The rest of this section describes how to use the various screens within the Administration User Interface. An initial dashboard provides an overview of running system processes, recently completed tasks and recent user activity. The Dashboard contains a link to Quick Start, which allows quick configuration of a data source and immediate initiation of content indexing.
An essential part of managing a search application is indexing documents and proper configuration of index fields. Scheduling regular updates to content is a key component of keeping the system up to date. Once content indexing has begun, the Administration User Interface helps administrators see the progress of the indexing jobs.
There are several ways to provide the user an ideal search experience and the LucidWorks Enterprise user interface makes the major settings easy to configure. The ability to monitor user activity allows an administrator to understand the performance of their production system.
