Collection Cfg (collection.cfg)




Collection Location


Collection Defaults



Main configuration file for a collection.The collection.cfg configuration file is created when a collection is created and may be updated whenever a collection is updated.


The format of the file is a simple name=value pair per line, with the values $SEARCH_HOME and $COLLECTION_NAME automatically expanded to the funnelback installation path and the name of the current collection automatically.

Configuration options

The following tables contain descriptions of the options that are used in the configuration file. Note that some are specific to the collection's type, while others are used for every collection.

Standard Funnelback default values for each configuration option are defined in $SEARCH_HOME/conf/collection.cfg.default and server-wide default values may be configured by adding them to the file at $SEARCH_HOME/conf/collection.cfg
