Enhancement for PTC to Document how to Convert Standalone SOLR into a Service.
PTC Documentation explained how to set up Index Program as a Service for older Index Software such as Fast Instream. Later in Windchill 10.2 SOLR Index was integrated under Method Server so Windchill as Service accounted for Indexing.
In Windchill 11 PTC has lost this ability to set standalone SOLR as a Service. A Functionality Lost. (Development missed the requirement and thus calls it an Enhancement)
CS240551 which is an unsupported method using a 3rd Party App (Non Sucking Service Manager -NSSM to Convert a Program into a Service)
SPR5765674 Is For Enhancement
PTC Technical Support asked me to make an Enhancement Question to motivate Development, for most our customers we configure Apache/Windchill as a Service. To Leave Solr running in a Windchill Shell and the User Logged in is not considered a good solution, Using an unsupported App with Non Professional Website and uncommon Domain (.cc) is not recommended either.
Faceted Search is on of the improvements of 11.0 would be nice to have it running; After Windows reboots servers for Updates.
