Generating Content Item Field Indexes

If you add new content item field indexes to an existing publication, then you will need to explicitly generate the indexes for all existing content items. To do this:

  1. Go the Escenic Web Administration interface.

  2. Select List pubs.

  3. Select the publication you have modified.

  4. Select Run field indexer.

The new field will be indexed automatically in any content items subsequently added to the publication.

Note the following:

  • Some changes to content types can cause existing indexes to get out of sync. You can correct (or avoid) such problems by running the field indexer after modifying content type definitions.

  • Indexing can be very time-consuming, and can have a significant effect on database performance.
