Full-text search configuration

Full-text search configuration

 

Property

Description

Metadata URL

Configure a reference to a metadata document (must be available via HTTP) as URL.

Note: You may configure the unique Metadata document identifier (UUID) of a Catalog Service (CSW 2.0) here. In this case you must configure the SOAP interface of the Catalog Services in Metadata Display.

Metadata short description

Allows a short description of the metadata. Word wrap can be accomplished with a "\n".

Use full-text search?

Controls if the full-text search is available in the WebOffice 10.8 SP2 clients or not.

Search operator

Specifies how the search input from the user is applied.

Using the AND-operator, all given words must be matched, while using the OR-operator also returns results that only match some of the given words.

Note: See also the setting Word Delimiters of the full-text search in the application configuration.

Note: This setting will be overruled, if the operator AND or OR is used between two search words directly in the search input.

GUI display in

Defines whether the search control of the full-text search is located in the toolbar ("Toolbar") or in the queries ("Queries") of the user interface.

Note: This function is only possible in the WebOffice html Client. See chapter Quicksearch to get an idea about the appearance in the WebOffice core client.

Full-text search at start visible?

Specifies whether having the full-text search form at start visible ("Yes") or minimized ("No").

Note: This parameter is valid for WebOffice flex (flash) client. See chapter Quicksearch for details.

Highlight full-text search control?

Specifies if the full-text search control gets highlighted with a glow effect ("Yes") or not ("No").

List thematic searches alphabetically?

Specifies, whether the list of thematic full-text searches is sorted alphabetically ('Yes') or according to the order the queries are configured ('No').

Maximum hits

Set maximum count of hits shown in result.

Note: If this attribute is not set, the corresponding value from "Defaults" will be used.

Note: By configuring the value "0" it is possible to deactivate suggestions for the full-text search.

Maximum expanded results

Maximum size of a result list to be displayed automatically expanded in the "Result of Full-Text Search". A larger result list is displayed as a contracted node unless all results belong to the same layer.

Number of suggestions

Specifies the number of values given as suggestions for the full-text search. The suggestion elements are ordered by their search ranking (i.e. how precisely a result value fits the given search query). Elements with identical ranking are alphanumerically ordered.

Caution: The list of suggestion may not contain all resulting values, but only as many as configured here.

Note: If this attribute is not set, the corresponding value from "Defaults" will be used.

Max suggestion name length

The maximal length for displaying a suggestion value. Suggestion values of results with a longer object name are truncated and displayed with a trailing "..". If a layer is configured to show the layer name in the full-text search suggestion (to be configured under "Search result view -> Layer name in full-text suggestion?"), the layer name will occupy a portion of the length defined here).

Max suggestion layer name length

Maximally displayed length of the layer name when it is to be displayed as a part of the full-text search suggestion. Layer names that are too long are truncated and displayed with a trailing "..".

Note: See parameter "Layer name in full-text suggestion?" in chapter Search Result View for configuration.

Consider layer visibility

Specifies whether the layer visibility settings in the TOC (table of content) should be taken into account. If "Yes" is configured, full-text search results and suggestions will only be given for layers that are defined as visible.

Possible visibility scale ranges are not being taken into account.

Start search in list of suggestions?

Specifies whether a special entry "all results" shall be displayed in the list of full-text search suggestions to enable displaying all search results instead of one single suggestion result. This attribute is only relevant for the Flex client.

User for ArcGIS Online Services

Defines the user who is used for ArcGIS Online services to create Full-text search indices.

User password for ArcGIS Online Services

Defines the user password which is used for ArcGIS Online services to create Full-text search indices.

Full-text search configuration

 

Full-text search status fields

The configured status fields 'UniqueID' and 'ChangeDate' enable WebOffice 10.8 SP2 to detect changes by third party applications to indexed data and re-create affected subindices when required.

Therefore the status fields "UniqueID" and "ChangeDate" have to be configured.
