Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3317) Admin UI: Improve request handler / qt in query form
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2012 13:52:40 GMT


Stefan Matheis (steffkes) commented on SOLR-3317:

bq. The presence of 'qt' on this page bothers me just a little.
Yes, i realized this already ;> I don't mind if we change it!

What about the following: In preparation of changing the Handler-Selection, we move the current
{{qt}}-Field to the top, over the "common"-Section and we name it "Request-Handler (qt)".
That the used parameter (if needed) is named {{qt}} does not even matter, but w/o the "(qt)"
addition i can already hear some "where is the qt-option questions" *gg

JFYI: For the upcoming selection, i'd like to use [Chosen|]
(which is already in place for the Schema-Browser and the Analysis) - useful especially for
those who have defined more than a few Handlers in their Instance.

> The query form in the admin UI could use an improvement regarding how the request handler
is chosen; presently all there is is a text input for 'qt'. The first choice to make in the
form above the query should really be the request handler since it actually handles the request
before any other parameters do anything.  I think it'd be nice if it was filled with "/select"
by default to make it very clear what's there, although I realize most of this query form
seems to prefer blank values as defaults.  When the form creates the URL to submit to Solr
for the search, it needs to do something different depending on wether this value starts with
a '/'.  If it does, this goes where "/select" goes in the URL normally (i.e. it's the tail
end of the path after the core).  If it doesn't then it goes into the 'qt' URL parameter.
> I did something similar to the old 3x UI in SOLR-3161 that got committed to 3.6.
