Index Overview

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

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

NOTE:

Before you index data, 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 the IDOL Content component 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.

Local document (accessed through the file system) Remote document (accessed over the indexing port)
  • Content receives a file path.

  • Content opens the file and reads the document data.

  • Content indexes the document.

  • Content receives a stream of data over the port.

  • Content saves the data locally.

  • Content opens the local file and reads the document data.

  • Content indexes the document.
