Delete Documents by Reference

If you identify one or more documents by their reference field, you can delete them from the HPE IDOL Server data index by sending a DREDELETEREF action (case sensitive) from your Web browser:

http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREDELETEREF?Docs=docReferences&Field=fields&DREDbName=databaseName

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).
docReferences is a list of the (percent-encoded) references of the documents that you want to delete. If the references contain plus symbols (+) or spaces, percent-encode each reference, then separate multiple references with plus symbols (there must be no space before or after a plus symbol).
fields

is the field that contains the reference specified in the Docs parameter when a document has more than one reference. Separate multiple references with commas or spaces (there must be no space before or after a comma). For example, the following action:

DREDELETEREF?Docs=myref1.txt&Field=REFFIELD1

deletes a document that contains the following references:

#DREFIELD REFFIELD1="myref1.txt"
#DREFIELD REFFIELD2="myref2.txt"

but does not delete a document that contains the following references:

#DREFIELD REFFIELD1="myref2.txt"
#DREFIELD REFFIELD2="myref1.txt"
databaseName

is the name of the database that the documents that you want to delete belong to.

This parameter is optional. If you do not specify a database, HPE IDOL Server deletes the document from all databases that contain it.

For example:

http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREDELETEREF?Docs=http%3A%2F%2Fnews%2Enewssite%2Ecom%2Findex%2Ehtml+http%3A%2F%2Fnews%2Enewssite%2Ecom%2Fcoverstory%2Ehtml

This action uses port 20001 to delete the documents with the specified URLs from HPE IDOL Server, which is located on a machine with the IP address 12.3.4.56.
