How to setup summary index without si* command?

Observer

I have followed this guide.
My search is a simple one, just to export errors to another index:

index=index_1 ... level>30

After the scheduled job finished running, the index is empty.
I am a bit confued when to use the collect command.

I have configured the search (report) with the summary index, but nothing happened...

What am I doing wrong?

Did you "Set up summary index searches in Splunk Web?", as documented on Use summary indexing for increased reporting efficiency

Or you can use the collect command in the search, I use the above via Splunk Web as per the docs...

Does the search head forward it's logs to the indexers?

I have tried using the collect and also the Summary Index thru Splunk Web.
What do you mean by forward its logs to the indexers?

Are your indexers different servers to your search heads?
