Re Global search#Setting up Solr, it seems that the compatibility problems with Solr 7 are now fixed (for Moodle 3.5)? See https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-60759 . --Henning Bostelmann (talk) 13:32, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
Can you please add information what data are searched by Simple Global Search and what the difference between Global Search and Simple Global Search for a user is. Otherwise its confusing.
|Standard search options in Moodle||Simple Search||Global search (with SolR)|
|Several search options in special contexts:
||Simple search allows searching for content that is stored in the database. The search results are notlimitied to one context. Its posisble to allow for search only in courses a user is enrolled to or in all courses the user can enrole himself||Global Search with SolR will also find search results from files that are used in the courses. The SolR indexing service reads the database and the file content.|
