To set up fields that determine when documents expire
1.
2.
For example:
[FieldProcessing]
0=IndexFields
1=IndexAndWeightHigher
3.
[FieldProcessing]
0=IndexFields
1=IndexAndWeightHigher
2=ExpireDateFields
Note that the listed field processes are numbered in consecutive order, starting from zero.
4.
Create a section for your new field process in the configuration file. Create a property for the new process and use the PropertyFieldCSVs settings to identify the document fields that determine whether documents expire (a document expires when the time in this field elapses).
For example:
[ExpireDateFields]
Property=SetExpireDate
PropertyFieldCSVs=*/DREEXPIRE,*/valid_time
5.
Create a section for your new property in the configuration file and set the ExpireDateType to true to indicate that the associated PropertyFieldCSVs fields hold the document expiry date.
To include an extra offset from the expiry date in the field, set ExpireAfterDelay to the number of hours (positive or negative) by which to offset the field expiry date.
For example:
[SetExpireDate]
ExpireDateType=TRUE
ExpireAfterDelay=12
