Subject Re: SOLr 6.2.1, dealing with the redirected SOLr web admin
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2017 17:07:34 GMT
The Admin UI is a Javascript interface over the API calls Solr
provides. The # part is Angular.JS way of doing UI state management.

You are very unlikely to need to provide the Admin UI URL to any
system. They will talk directly to Solr at
/solr/collectionname/handlername, e.g. /solr/atom/select?q=*:*.

If you are using older version of Solr, you may see a convention where
the collection name is not mentioned in URL and is assumed to be
collection1. In the latest version of Solr, the collection name is a
compulsory part of the URL.
