Frontend search services
Administration functions that are provided by the marketing dashboard will become available once a profile is flagged as a frontend service. This indicates which profiles are used as search endpoints for users.
This provides access to the analytics and audit reports, as well as the editing interfaces for items appearing on the customise tab of the administration interface (editing of best bets, synonyms, curator rules and faceted navigation). It also enables access to the tuning editor.
A search service for a selected collection (and profile if in use) can be created with the create service button within the classic administration interface home page. After clicking this create service button, it will be replaced with buttons to access the marketing dashboard for the created service and to decommission the service if it is no longer required.
Once created, the service can be further customised by editing the corresponding profile.cfg file.
