Export IDX Documents from HPE IDOL Server

You can send a DREEXPORTIDX action (case sensitive) from your Web browser to export IDX documents from one or more HPE IDOL Server databases. (Use DREEXPORTXML to export XML documents.) Use the following syntax:

http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREEXPORTIDX?FileName=fileName&Compress=True|False&DatabaseMatch=databaseCSV&BatchSize=size&MinDate=minDate&MaxDate=maxDate

where:

IDOLhost The IP address or name of the HPE IDOL Server machine.
indexPort The HPE IDOL Server index port (the value of IndexPort in the [Server] section of the HPE IDOL Server configuration file).
fileName The path to the location where you store the IDX files to export. Double-byte file names are acceptable. The path must include a basic file name, which HPE IDOL Server postfixes with incremental numbers and an appropriate extension. If you do not specify a file name, HPE IDOL Server exports the files to the current working directory (IDOLserver\IDOL\content), and HPE IDOL Server creates a file name in the format AUTN-IDX-EXPORT-host-port-date>-time-incrementalNumber.extension.
Compress Whether to compress the exported files. Set Compress to False if you do not want to compress the files.
databaseCSV If you do not want to export documents from all HPE IDOL Server databases, enter one or more databases to restrict the export to. If you want to specify multiple databases, separate them with plus symbols, commas, or spaces (there must be no space before or after plus symbols or commas).
size The maximum number of document sections that you want to export to one IDX file. The default value is 100,000 sections.
minDate The earliest creation date or time that a document can have to export.
maxDate The latest creation date or time that a document can have to export.
NOTE:

For additional action parameters, refer to the IDOL Server Reference.

Example 1:

http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREEXPORTIDX?FileName=/export/data/backup/output&Compress=True&DatabaseMatch=News,Archive&BatchSize=1000&MinDate=01/01/2003&MaxDate=01/01/2004

In this example, HPE IDOL Server exports all IDX documents that have dates between the first of January 2003 and the first of January 2004. It exports from the News and Archive databases to a series of compressed files in the /export/data/backup directory. It names the files created in this directory output-0.idx.gz, output-1.idx.gz and so on.

Example 2:

http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREEXPORTIDX?

In this example, HPE IDOL Server exports all IDX documents to a series of compressed files in the HPE IDOL Server current working directory (IDOLserver\IDOL\content). It names the files created in this directory AUTN-IDX-EXPORT-12.04.2005-02.15.41-0.idx.gz, AUTN-IDX-EXPORT-12.04.2005-02.15.41-1.idx.gz and so on.

NOTE:

HPE IDOL Server does not split the sections of a multiple section document across batches. If the exact BatchSize splits a multiple-section document, HPE IDOL Server does not use the exact value.

NOTE:

You do not need to uncompress compressed IDX files before you index them. For example, the action DREADD?output-0.idx.gz indexes the output-0.idx.gz file correctly without you having to uncompress the file first.
