In the Publish to Solr window, specify the connection information for publishing to the Solr instance.

2. Enter the description of the publisher that will be shown in the Workflow Tree.

3. Enter the Specify Solr Update URLHost and port (Not supported from version Solr 5)

    1. Enter the Solr host
    2. Enter the Solr port (8983 by default)

5. Complete URL:

    1. Enter the URL for the Solr server, it must have this format <protocol>://<host>:<port>/solr/<core>/update
    1. Enter the Solr core name
    2. Enter the Solr host
    3. Enter the Solr port  (8983 by default)

6.  Max Results per request: How many documents can be fetched by the search engine for the same query

9. Id field: Field used to store the ID in Solr. Used to compare against the content source audit logs

10. Timestamp field: the name of the timestamp field added to the XSL file (and to the Solr schema) to hold the index timestamp of every document.

11. XSL File Path: set to the default parameter to use the default XSL transformation file. To use a custom file, follow the instructions in Edit Xsl.

12. Debug: Check if you want to run the publisher in debug mode.
