Replace Field Values in Indexed Documents

(Available for Content and Agentstore components, and IDOL Proxy.)

In the Replace tab, you can change field values or delete fields from indexed documents. This functionality is enabled by default. Click Hide it if you do not want the feature to be visible. If the feature is hidden and you want to view it, click Show me - I know what I’m doing.

Caution: You cannot recover your original data after you have replaced or deleted values from indexed documents.

The Replace tab corresponds to the DREREPLACE action. For information about this action, refer to the IDOL Server Reference.

To replace or delete field values in indexed documents

  1. Specify the fields to replace or delete using one of the following methods:
    1. Select Introduce some data that defines the fields and values to replace or delete. Copy and paste in text that specifies:
      1. the documents in which to delete or replace the field values
      2. the names of fields to delete or replace
      3. the values to substitute, or whether to delete the field
      4. #DREENDDATANOOP to mark the end of the index action parameters
    2. Select UTF-8 encoded local file containing DREREPLACE parameters. Click Choose Files to browse to a file that already specifies the preceding information.
  2. Select one or more databases in which to change the data. To select more than one database, hold down CTRL and click each database.

    In the Resulting Index Action box, the index action is automatically constructed as you complete the preceding fields. This action is sent to IDOL Server. It is shown for reference only; you cannot edit the action directly.

  3. Select a value for the Index Action Priority, which determines how IDOL Server queues the action.
  4. Click Replace.

IDOL Server performs the replace action on the specified documents. The changes are not visible in index searches until the index cache is flushed to disk. Click Sync to flush the index cache.
