Configure HPE View Server

HPE View Server converts original documents into HTML format for viewing in a Web browser. It can also highlight search terms in the document, when displaying a search results. HPE IDOL Data Admin uses HPE View Server to create the document previews in searches.

There are two viewing modes. The appropriate one to use depends on how you index your documents:


If a document does not have the required reference field or connector group and identifier, IDOL Data Admin renders the title and document content from the Content index in the document previews. In this case, it uses the DRETITLE and DRECONTENT document fields to populate the title and content, respectively.

Users with the Administrator role can use the Settings pages to configure the HPE View Server.
