Reindexing namespaces associated with a content class

You can reindex the namespaces associated with a content class at any time. You might do this for example, if you add a new content property to the content class.

To reindex one or more of the namespaces associated with a content class, on the Search page:

1.In the list of content classes, click on the name of the content class with the namespaces you want to reindex.

2.In the row of tabs below the content class name, click on Reindex.

The Content Class Namespaces section in the Reindex panel displays a list of the namespaces that are associated with the content class.

3.Optionally, filter the list of namespaces by namespace name:

a.In the Content Class Namespaces field, type a text string to use as a filter. This string can be up to 64 characters long and can contain any valid UTF-8 characters, including white space. It is not case sensitive.

You cannot filter the namespace list while any of the namespaces in it are selected for reindexing.

b.Click on the find control ( FindControl.png ).

To redisplay the entire list of namespaces after filtering it, click on the clear filter control ( ClearFilterControl.png ).

4.For each namespace you want to reindex, click on the add control ( PlusControl.png ) to select the namespace. The namespace row turns green.

To select all the namespaces in the list, click on Select All.

To deselect a selected namespace, click on the remove control ( MinusControl.png ) for the namespace.

To deselect all the namespaces after selecting all, click on Clear.

5.In the Reindex Selected Namespaces section, select either All objects or Objects modified after.

If you select Objects modified after, either type a date in the associated field or click on the calendar control ( CalendarControl.png ) to select a date. If you type a date, use this format: mm/dd/yyyy

If you enter an invalid date using the correct date format, HCP tries to convert it to a real date. For example, if you enter 11/31/2012, HCP converts it to 12/01/2012.

6.Click on Reindex Namespaces.

If you selected All objects, a confirming message appears.

In the window with the confirming message, select I understand to confirm that you understand the consequences of your action. Then click on Reindex Objects.


Note: If indexing is disabled for any of the selected namespaces, the above procedure by itself does not start the reindexing process for them. To start reindexing those namespaces, you need to reenable indexing for them individually. For information on doing that, see Setting search and indexing options.

For more information on reindexing namespaces, see Content class and content property workflow. For information on reindexing an individual namespace from the namespace Search panel, see Reindexing an individual namespace.
