Control whether the search user’s current location should automatically set as the search origin. Current location will be derived from the user’s IP address and the MaxMind Geolite database. This will set the -origin padre query processor option if it is not manually specified.

This option can be turned on if the ui.modern.geolocation.enabled is true.

Setting the key

Set this configuration key in the results page (preferred) or search package configuration.

Use the configuration key editor to add or edit the ui.modern.geolocation.set_origin key, and set the value. This can be set to any valid Boolean value.

Default value



Disable automatically setting the search origin. Funnelback will use (somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean) and all kmFromOrigin values will be calculated from this origin.
