Deploying and managing the WebSphere Commerce Search server in the managed configuration

You can deploy and work with the WebSphere Commerce Search server in the managed configuration. The managed configuration is a variation of the advanced configuration, but contains streamlined configuration tasks, where all managed production Solr cluster members are federated and managed by a deployment manager.

About this task

Managed configurations are Solr home templates that can be managed by the deployment manager. The templates can be for master, subordinate, and repeater servers. An input loading property file is used to generate the different templates and configure replication. The WebSphere Application Server Deployment Manager is used to perform partial EAR updates. Then, all the managed nodes are synchronized with the managed Solr templates. Optionally, you can configure the managed repeater and subordinate index cores to perform index validation during replication before packaging and deploying the search server.
