Hybris OOTB Solr configuration background

The default configuration is as follows:
Here, you can see autostart=true which tell Solr server to start and stop together with the Hybris platform. In another word, we can say default configuration ensures that a standalone Solr server is configured, started and stopped together with the platform.

Setup external Standalone Server

As we have seen, OOTB (post hybris v5.5) solr server is already configured as standalone server mode=standalone. It means, solr setup is already present in Hybris suite which we can use or download and setup our own solr server. Now, the only thing we want is to start/stop it independently from Hybris instance. To do so we need disables the autostart for the default Solr instance using below properties.


How to start/stop solr server

If you want to use Hybris provided solr server setup, then you can simply use ant commands to start and stop solr server
ant startSolrServer
ant stopSolrServer
Hybris OOTB, you can find solr setup at hybris/bin/ext-commerce/solrserver/resources/solr/. You can also run solr script manually as mentioned below.
If you have your own solr server setup, then go to the bin directory
