The field processing configuration section in the configuration file that you want to update. You can use this method to modify the field properties without restarting your server.
For CountType, MatchType, BitFieldType, NumericType (including NumericIntegerOnly), NumericDateType, ParametricType, ParametricRangeType, and SortType, you can modify the field properties but the changes take effect only after index regeneration.
For some other fields, such as Index fields, you must reindex your data. If you attempt to modify fields with a property that requires a reindex, the index action returns an error status, and does not process the change.
When you provide this parameter, you can also set the Type parameter to
Auto, IDOL Server automatically detects the field configurations that you are updating, and regenerates the necessary index. Set Type to
None if you do not want to regenerate, for example because you are making a number of field configuration changes and then run a single regenerate operation.
