Solr Tutorial

Lucene has a custom query syntax for querying its indexes.

Lucene Query Syntax

Search for phrase "course" in the title field.

title:"foo bar"

Since Solr accepts HTTP requests, you can use your web browser to communicate with Solr. For example, search for phrase "course" in the _fullpath field.

http://localhost:8983/solr/sitecore/select?q=_fullpath%3A*course*&wt=json&indent=true
