Hue 3.11 how to show solr custom query values in hue search dashboard?

New Contributor

Hi Hue Team!
I’m playing around with Solr Search in Hue 3.11 on top of CDH-5.10(parcels).
AFAIK I can’t create new field during indexing so I did a custom Solr query to calculate required values.
I see “query definitions” button in right upper corner in hue search dashboard – can I use it to add my custom Solr’s query? If yes – how?

If no – is there a way to make my calculated values available during dashboard’s creation?
The query I use:








Pls watch the video in the below link, it will show you how to use query definition

What would be the purpose? (seems like it would defeat the purpose of the

Hello Romain,


Let me clarify a bit more my situation:

I've a database with fuel consumption statistic which I can index without problems using new indexer.

I've tried to add a new field based on simple calculation of two existing fields during the indexing but I didn't find an option to do that. 

So I've created a Solr query (directly in Solr GUI) which calculates required field (fuel consumption):


Now I want to be able to use it somehow in hue search dashboard (for fuel consumption graph for example).

Can I visualize something that is not directly in index in hue search dashboard?
