Static Promotion Rules

The following table shows all the fields that you must include in the IDX file for static promotion rules.


The rule format described in this table assumes that the documents that you want to promote exist in your IDOL Server data index. HPE recommends that you promote only indexed content. However, if required, you can also add promotion items into your static promotion IDX. See Promote Non-Indexed Content.
