KM search

Dear Readers,

In the KM search iviews, there is a property "Path to Root folder for Search". If I give the path as folder1/folder2/folder3, does it search for documents starting from folder3 to all its subfolders or from folder1. Also, When I use this property, do I need to set the "Default Search Scope" to folders? Can someone give me a clarification on this.

Thanks,

Mandar

    Hi Mandar,

    your question gives the correct answer in itself.

    If you do not specify a "root folder", the search iView will ask TREX for all it has.

    If your default search should be limited to certain folders, you need to set the "Default Search Scope" to folders and then specify your desired root folder.

    If your default search should be limited to certain indexes, you need to set the "Default Search Scope" to indexes and then specify the desired indexes.

    Regards,

      Hi Mandar,

      If the default search scope is set to Indexes the basic search will go through the indexes but when the user clicks on advanced search the user has the option to select the folders and search from there.

      I think you can change this by removing the folder search option from advanced search screen in the User Interface option.

      I haven't done this myself but i think you can do that.

      Regards

    In the KM Search iview, when I set the property "Path to Root folder for search", is it necessary that I need to set the "Default search scope" property to FOLDER and not INDEXES? If I set it to INDEXES, is it going to affect my search results?

    Thanks,

    Mandar

      Hi Mandar,

      Yes I think you have to set the "Default search scope" property to "Folder" because the index may be pointing to some other folder.

      The basic search will search based on the default configuration which you can change in Advanced search option.
