ReferenceType Fields

ReferenceType fields are used to identify documents. Before you index a document into HPE IDOL Server, you have to set up a field process that determines which of the fields in a document are used as its ReferenceType field (note that a document can have multiple ReferenceType fields).

At index time, you can use ReferenceType fields to eliminate duplicate copies of documents. At query time, you can use ReferenceType fields to filter results (for example, by using the Combine action parameter or by specifying references that results must or must not match).

Note that if you want to eliminate duplicate document copies and use the Combine action parameter, you must set up separate ReferenceType fields for these processes.
