Trex 6.0 User Guide?

I am not sure what I am missing/doing wrong but I have configured TREX and KM in my SAP Portal 6.0 SP2 but not sure how to use it?!

I can monitor it from the portal and create indexes but I have no search input screen etc.

I have followed the Admin Guide for Portal and under KM is a brief TREX config setup but nothing else.

Is there an Admin/User Guide specific and only for TREX?

Thanks for your time,

    Hi Chris,

    you should also have a Search field in the portal's header. This, by default, searches over all previously created indices. If there is no Search field in the header, please check the header's configuration (Portal Content, not KM configuration).

    Through the flexible UI of KM, you can change as well the search field's occurence as the look of the advanced search options and the search results page.

    Advanced search should be an option, after you have initiated an initial search from the portal header search field.


    End user => use KM documentation at

    The visibility of search fields in the UI of Ep-KM is NOT controlled by the TREX engine => TREX documentation will not help. Check the KM documentation's part about the UI and the Portal's about configuring the header

    • Hi Chris,

      At least in an NW'04 Portal it is:

      Top Level Navigation:


      - Content Administration

      -- Portal Content

      Detailed Navigation:


      - Portal Content

      -- Portal Users

      --- Standard Portal Users


      Framework Page (Edit)


      Tool Area (add)

      May be slightly different in an EP 6.0, SP2.

      Ask me again, if you cannot find it.
