Creating a Collection in Cloudera Search

A collection in Search used for HBase indexing must have a Solr schema that accommodates the types of HBase column families and qualifiers that are being indexed. To begin, consider adding the all-inclusive data field to a default schema.

Once you decide on a schema, create a collection using commands similar to the following:
solrctl instancedir --generate $HOME/hbase_collection_config
## Edit $HOME/hbase_collection_config/conf/schema.xml as needed ##
solrctl instancedir --create hbase_collection_config $HOME/hbase_collection_config
solrctl collection --create hbase_collection -s <numShards> -c hbase_collection_config
