Collection Dashboard

In SearchBlox, a collection is a grouping of documents indexed according to a set of rules and paths, and searches are submitted against the collection. The set of collections that are created can be viewed through the collection dashboard. The collection dashboard is accessible only by the admin.

There are several different types of collections that can be created in SearchBlox:

Creating a Collection

  • After logging in to the Admin Console, click on the Add Collection button.
  • Enter a unique Collection name for the data source.
  • Choose a Collection Type.
  • Choose the language of the content (if the language is other than English).
  • Click Add to create the collection.



  • Private collections can be accessed only through secure search authentication.
  • Public collections can be accessed with or without secure search authentication.
