A solrium connection object, see SolrClient


Name of a collection or core. Or leave as NULL if not needed.


(list) a named list of parameters, results in a GET request as long as no body parameters given


(list) a named list of parameters, if given a POST request will be performed


Call options passed on to crul::HttpClient


(logical) If TRUE, returns raw data in format specified by wt param


(character) One of 'list' or 'df'


(character) Character to concatenate elements of longer than length 1. Note that this only works reliably when data format is json (wt='json'). The parsing is more complicated in XML format, but you can do that on your own.


(logical) If TRUE, then rows parameter will be adjusted to the number of returned results by the same constraints. It will only be applied if rows parameter is higher than minOptimizedRows. Default: TRUE


(numeric) used by optimizedMaxRows parameter, the minimum optimized rows. Default: 50000


a function with logic for printing a progress bar for an HTTP request, ultimately passed down to curl. only supports httr::progress for now. See the README for an example.


Further args to be combined into query


XML, JSON, a list, or data.frame

More like this parameters

  • q Query terms, defaults to ':', or everything.

  • fq Filter query, this does not affect the search, only what gets returned

  • mlt.count The number of similar documents to return for each result. Default is 5.

  • mlt.fl The fields to use for similarity. NOTE: if possible these should have a stored TermVector DEFAULT_FIELD_NAMES = new String[] "contents"

  • mlt.mintf Minimum Term Frequency - the frequency below which terms will be ignored in the source doc. DEFAULT_MIN_TERM_FREQ = 2

  • mlt.mindf Minimum Document Frequency - the frequency at which words will be ignored which do not occur in at least this many docs. DEFAULT_MIN_DOC_FREQ = 5

  • mlt.minwl minimum word length below which words will be ignored. DEFAULT_MIN_WORD_LENGTH = 0

  • mlt.maxwl maximum word length above which words will be ignored. DEFAULT_MAX_WORD_LENGTH = 0

  • mlt.maxqt maximum number of query terms that will be included in any generated query. DEFAULT_MAX_QUERY_TERMS = 25

  • mlt.maxntp maximum number of tokens to parse in each example doc field that is not stored with TermVector support. DEFAULT_MAX_NUM_TOKENS_PARSED = 5000

  • mlt.boost (true/false) set if the query will be boosted by the interesting term relevance. DEFAULT_BOOST = false

  • mlt.qf Query fields and their boosts using the same format as that used in DisMaxQParserPlugin. These fields must also be specified in mlt.fl.

  • fl Fields to return. We force 'id' to be returned so that there is a unique identifier with each record.

  • wt (character) Data type returned, defaults to 'json'. One of json or xml. If json, uses fromJSON to parse. If xml, uses xmlParse to parse. csv is only supported in solr_search and solr_all.

  • start Record to start at, default to beginning.

  • rows Number of records to return. Defaults to 10.

  • key API key, if needed.
