Index Overview
You can index only files in XML or IDX format into IDOL server. If the data that you want to index into IDOL server is in XML format, you can index it directly into IDOL server, without having to first import it (convert its content and metadata to IDX).
Autonomy connectors use the DREADD and DREADDDATA index actions to index data into IDOL server. You also can use these actions to directly index data into IDOL server.
 
If your data is not in XML format, you must first import it. You can import data using one of two methods.
*
Import with a connector. The Autonomy connectors (for example, File System Connector, HTTP Connector, Oracle Connector, and so on) retrieve documents from different repositories and import them into IDX or XML file format. Refer to the appropriate connector guide for further information on how to import documents.
*
Import manually. You can create a text file in either XML or IDX format, which contains the information that you want to index into your IDOL server in specific IDOL server fields.
