Change Document Metadata
Issue a DRECHANGEMETA index action (case sensitive) from your Web browser to change the metadata (index date, expire date, or database) of documents. You can identify individual documents or document ranges by their references or IDs. (You can specify ranges only with IDs.)
http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DRECHANGEMETA?Type=type&Refs=docReferences&Docs=docIDs&NewValue=value
where,
 
is the IDOL server index port (specified as IndexPort in the IDOL server configuration file [Server] section).
*
date. The index date to assign to the documents. Tthe date you specify must be in a format that you set for DateFormatCSVs in the IDOL server configuration file.
*
expiredate. The expire date to assign to the documents. The date you specify must be in a format that you set for DateFormatCSVs in the IDOL server configuration file.
*
database. The database to move the documents to.
is a list of (percent-encoded) references to the documents whose metadata is to change. If the references contain plus symbols (+) or spaces, percent-encode each reference, then separate multiple references with plus symbols (there must be no space before or after a plus symbol) and percent-encode the whole string again (using Internet Explorer or the ACI client).
is one or more individual document IDs or a ranges of document IDs for the documents whose metadata is to change. Use one or a combination of these two formats to do this. 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.
For example:
http://12.3.4.56:20001/DRECHANGEMETA?Type=database&Docs=3+5+range=[7,10]&NewVal ue=Archive
This action uses port 20001 to reassign the documents with the IDs 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, and 10 to the Archive database. IDOL server is located on a machine with the IP address 12.3.4.56.
