This action retrieves a list of document identifiers and optionally performs an action on them (currently only the collect action is available). Do not use this action to perform queries that IDOL Server can process more efficiently.


Type: Asynchronous

Parameter Name Description Required

A base-64 encoded configuration. The configuration parameters that are set override the same parameters in the connector's configuration file.

ConfigSection The name of the configuration file section containing the task settings. Yes
IdentifiersAction The name of the action to perform on the returned identifiers. If this action must be passed additional parameters, specify them as parameters to this action. No
Connector-specific_Parameters Additional parameters that are connector-specific and determine which identifiers to return. Yes

Any other action parameters that you set override settings in the connector's configuration file. For example:


where [Section] (optional) is the name of a configuration file section, Parameter is the name of a configuration parameter, and Value is the parameter value.





As this is an asynchronous action, you receive a token in response to the request. A sample response to the action (as retrieved using the QueueInfo action) appears below.

The response shows that the action has completed. The identifiers are listed in between the <identifiers> tags.
