Export XML Documents from IDOL Server
You can send a DREEXPORTXML action (case sensitive) from your Web browser to export XML documents from one or more IDOL server databases (use DREEXPORTIDX to export IDX documents):
http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREEXPORTIDX?FileName=fileName&Compress=true|false&DatabaseMatch=databaseCSV&BatchSize=size&MinDate=minDate>&MaxDate=maxDate
where,
 
The IDOL server index port (the value of IndexPort in the IDOL server configuration file [Server] section).
The path to the location where you store the XML files to export. Double-byte filenames are acceptable. The path must include a basic file name which IDOL server postfixes with incremental numbers and an appropriate extension. If you do not specify a file name, IDOL server exports the files to the current working directory (IDOLserver\IDOL\content), and IDOL server creates a filename in the format AUTN-XML-EXPORT-host-port-date-time-incrementalNumber.extension.
Whether to compress the exported files. Set Compress to false if you do not want to compress the files.
To specify multiple databases, separate them with plus symbols, commas or spaces (there must be no space before or after plus symbols or commas).
The maximum number of document sections to export to one IDX file. The default value is 100,000 sections.
 
Example 1:
http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREEXPORTXML?FileName=/export/data/backup/output&Compress=true&DatabaseMatch=News,Archive&BatchSize=1000&mindate=01/01/2003&maxdate=01/01/2004
In this example, IDOL server exports all XML documents that have dates between the first of January 2003 and the first of January 2004. It exported from the News and Archive databases to a series of compressed files in the /export/data/backup directory. IDOL server names the files created in this directory output-0.xml.gz, output-1.xml.gz and so on.
Example 2:
http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREEXPORTXML?
In this example, IDOL server exports all XML documents to a series of compressed files in the IDOL server working directory (IDOLserver\IDOL\content). It names the files created in this directory AUTN-XML-EXPORT-12.04.2005-02.15.41-0.xml.gz, AUTN-XML-EXPORT-12.04.2005-02.15.41-1.xml.gz and so on.
 
NOTE IDOL server does not split multiple section documents across chunks, so the specified BatchSize is not used exactly if it splits a multiple section document
NOTE You do not need to uncompress compressed XML files before indexing them. For example, the action DREADD?output-0.xml.gz indexes the output-0.xml.gz file correctly without you having to uncompress the file first.
