Configure Solr

Current version: 8.2

Either Lucene or Solr, with Lucene being the default, can index Commerce Server.

You can use Solr instead of Lucene with SCpbMD. To use Solr instead of Lucene, you will need to perform two tasks: enable the Solr config files, and then create new index cores in Solr.

To enable the Solr config files go to the Sitecore instance folder on disk and do the following:

  1. Navigate to \Website\App_Config\Include\CommerceServer\ and add ".disabled" to the end of the following Lucene configuration files:

    • CommerceServer.ContentSearch.Lucene.DefaultIndexConfiguration.config

    • CommerceServer.ContentSearch.Lucene.Index.Master.config

    • CommerceServer.ContentSearch.Lucene.Index.Web.config

    1. Then remove ".example" from the following Solr configuration files:

      • CommerceServer.ContentSearch.Solr.DefaultIndexConfiguration.config.example

      • CommerceServer.ContentSearch.Solr.Index.Master.config.example

      • CommerceServer.ContentSearch.Solr.Index.Web.config.example

  2. If you are using the Reference Storefront, navigate to \Website\App_Config\Include\Reference.Storefront\ and add ".disabled" to the end of the following Lucene configuration file:

    • Reference.Storefront.Index.Lucene.config

    1. Then remove ".disabled" from the following Solr configuration file:

      • Reference.Storefront.Index.Solr.config.disabled

  3. To create the index cores in Solr, navigate to the folder where the Sitecore index folders are created, under the Solr installation. Use the same steps you just performed to create the Sitecore index cores to create index cores for the following:

    • commerce_products_master_index

    • commerce_products_web_index (optional)

Note

These instructions only provide the necessary information to set up Solr for the commerce related components. Sitecore must also be migrated to Solr.
