Delete Documents and Ranges of Documents

If you identify individual documents or ranges of documents by their ID, you can delete them from the HPE IDOL Server data index by sending a DREDELETEDOC action (case sensitive) from your Web browser:

http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREDELETEDOC?Docs=docIDs

where:

IDOLhost is the IP address or host name of the machine on which HPE IDOL Server is installed.
indexPort is the HPE IDOL Server index port (specified as IndexPort in the [Server] section of the HPE IDOL Server configuration file).
docIDs

is one or more individual document IDs or ranges of document IDs that specify the documents that you want to delete. Use one or a combination of the following two formats:

  • docID. Specify the IDs of one or more documents. To specify multiple document IDs, separate them with plus symbols (there must be no space before or after a plus symbol).

  • range=[min_docID,max_docID]. Enter the document ID of the first and last document in a range of documents that you want to delete.

If you want to combine the formats, separate them with plus symbols (there must be no space before or after a plus symbol).

For example:

http://MyHost:20001/DREDELETEDOC?Docs=3+5+range=[7,10]

This action uses port 20001 to delete the documents with the DocIDs 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 from HPE IDOL Server, which is located on a machine with the host name MyHost.
