Managing Full Text Indexing

How do I manage full-text indexing?
Clear Indices

The 1C:Enterprise 8 system allows you to arrange for full-text searches in data. Search is only possible by attributes of the following types:

  • Date;
  • String;
  • Number;
  • ValueStorage (if string is stored).

If these searches are provided for, 1C:Enterprise 8 allows you to control the processes that influence the execution of preliminary search operations (index creation and setting the update mode).

In ordinary run mode use the Operations – Manage Full Text Search command to manage full-text indexing.

In the managed run mode to manage full-text indexing use the standard Manage Full Text Search function accessible via the Tools – All Functions menu item.

The system will display a message in the top part of the form prompting you to update the index. The Index Relevance Date field contains start date of the last indexing.

After you press the Update Index button, the system generates search index.

To optimize the index generation process, both the basic and additional indices are used. The latter is generated during data input and contains information on the data entered after the last update of the basic index. If the Allow Indices Merge is checked, the result of last changes indexing is added to the basic index. This mode can take a long time (if the basic index is large).

Index clearing (initiated by clicking the Clear Index button) is recommended in cases when data has been completely or almost completely updated (e.g. during infobase restoration). When index clearing is complete, indexing should be performed (if required).

To setup full-text search, use the Settings button.
