Delete Documents and Ranges of Documents
If you identify individual documents or ranges of documents by their ID, you can delete them from the IDOL server data index by sending a DREDELETEDOC action (case sensitive) from your Web browser:
http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREDELETEDOC?docs=docIDs
where,
 
is the IDOL server index port (specified as IndexPort in the IDOL server configuration file [Server] section).
is one or more individual document IDs or ranges of document ID that specify the documents you want to delete. Use one or a combination of the following two formats. (If you want to combine the formats, separate them with plus symbols (there must be no space before or after a plus symbol):
*
docID. Specify the IDs of one or more documents. To specify multiple document IDs, separate them with plus symbols (there must be no space before or after a plus symbol).
*
range=[min_docID,max_docID]. Enter the document ID of the first and last document in a range of documents that you want to delete.
For example:
http://MyHost:20001/DREDELETEDOC?docs=3+5+range=[7,10]
This action uses port 20001 to delete the documents with the DOCID 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 from IDOL server, which is located on a machine with host name MyHost.
