Test search in the Nuclia Dashboard

Once you have some files indexed, you can use the search input in the Nuclia Dashboard search page.

You can search using a plain sentence like:

Where is the Little Prince coming from?

Nuclia will return the most relevant results. And if you enable the Generative Answer feature, Nuclia will also generate an answer to your question.

See query syntax details for more information.

Publish your Knowledge Box

In order to let other people search your Knowledge Box, you need to publish it.

Go to the left navigation bar and click on Knowledge Box settings, then click on Publish.

Add a search widget to your website

To equip your website or web application with Nuclia search, the easiest way is to add a Nuclia search widget to your website.

The Nuclia search widget is a ready-to-use search input allowing users to search your Knowledge Box and display the results without having to write any code.

In the Nuclia Dashboard, go to the left navigation bar and click on Widgets.

Copy the generated code snippet and paste it into your website.

You will obtain something similar to this:

Search using the API


You can search your Knowledge Box using the Nuclia API /find endpoint:

curl https://<zone><your-knowledge-box-id>/find?query=Where+is+the+Little+Prince+coming+from

See query syntax details for more information.

You can also get a generative answer to your question with the /chat endpoint:

curl https://<zone><your-knowledge-box-id>/chat?query=Where+is+the+Little+Prince+coming+from \
-H "x-synchronous: true"

The x-synchronous header on the /chat is mostly meant for testing purpose. The default behavior is to return a readable stream, as it allows to display the beginning of the answer without waiting for the end of the generation. The x-synchronous header makes the query slower, as it waits for the end of the generation before returning the answer.
