Index Overview

You can index only files in XML or IDX format into HPE IDOL Server. If the data that you want to index into HPE IDOL Server is in XML format, you can index it directly into HPE IDOL Server, without having to first import it (convert its content and metadata to IDX).

HPE IDOL connectors use the DREADD and DREADDDATA index actions to index data into HPE IDOL Server. You also can use these actions to directly index data into HPE IDOL Server.

NOTE:

Before you index data into HPE IDOL Server, review the setup instructions described in Configure Content Storage.

If your data is not in XML format, you must first import it. You can import data using one of three methods.

After the documents are in XML or IDX file format, you can index them into HPE IDOL Server using one of two methods.

Depending on where the data to index is located, the indexing steps for each document take place in the following order.
