User Interfaces

Fess provides 2 user interfaces:

  • Search form and results

  • Administration (used to configure and manage Fess)

Both interfaces are accessible via a web browser.

Search form and results

This is the primary UI which allows end users to run search queries and view results. Users will type in their query and click Search to view the results.

Display the search result on a browser


This UI is only used by administrators to configure and manage Fess. Administrators will be prompted to login before they can access the rest of the Administration interface.
