Changing the namespaces associated with a content class

You can change the associations between namespaces and content classes at any time. However, only namespaces that are search enabled can be associated with content classes.

When you change the namespaces associated with a content class, you have the option of reindexing all the affected namespaces. If you choose to do this, the metadata query engine reindexes each of those namespaces starting from the time the namespace was created.

Procedure

  1. On the Search page, in the list of content classes, click the name of the content class with for which you want to change namespace associations.

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

    In the Namespaces panel, the Associate Namespaces with Content Class section lists namespaces that are enabled for search and are not already associated with the content class. If any namespaces are already associated with the content class, they are listed in the Content Class Namespaces section.
  3. (Optional) Filter the list of namespaces in the Associate Namespaces with Content Class section by namespace name.

    1. In the Associate Namespaces with Content Class 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 association.
    2. Click the find control (GUID-6E913982-4DF5-4877-8C35-9F689D3C126D-low.png).

  4. For each namespace you want to associate with the content class, click the add control (GUID-8F13DD50-FB21-49E6-9458-7D5DA0C3AE63-low.png) for the namespace in the Associate Namespaces with Content Class section.

    • To select all the namespaces listed in the Associate Namespaces with Content Class list, click Select All.
    • To deselect a namespace, click the remove control (GUID-50078FA7-43B5-424D-8115-87D52014D41B-low.png) for it.
    • To deselect all the selected namespaces, click Clear.
    The row containing the namespace turns green.
  5. For each namespace in the Content Class Namespaces section that you want to dissociate from the content class, click the remove control (GUID-50078FA7-43B5-424D-8115-87D52014D41B-low.png) for the namespace in that section.

    • To select all the namespaces listed in the Content Class Namespaces section, click Select All.
    • To deselect a namespace, click the add control (GUID-8F13DD50-FB21-49E6-9458-7D5DA0C3AE63-low.png) for it.
    • To deselect all the selected namespaces, click Clear.
    TipYou can filter the list of namespaces in the Content Class Namespaces section by namespace name to include only those namespaces you want to remove from replication.
    The row containing the namespace turns red.
  6. (Optional) Reindex all the namespaces you are associating with or dissociating from the content class by selecting Reindex all objects in added/removed namespaces.

  7. Click Update Content Class.
