What Modifications Can Be Applied to the Index Using the Index Browser?

In the Index Browser page, there is a drop-down list containing actions that can be applied to folders or documents.

To apply an action

  1. In the Folder Content section, select at least one folder or file.

  2. In the drop-down list, select an action.

    Refer to the following table for details on available actions.

    Action Description

    Rebuild

    The folders and documents selected are deleted from the index, and then re-indexed.

    Refresh

    Of the folders and documents selected, only those modified since the last indexing are deleted and re-indexed.

    Remove from index and add exclusion filters

    The folders and documents selected are removed from the index and an exclusion filter is created to prevent their re-indexing.

    Remove from index

    The folders and documents selected are removed from the index. They are re-indexed if a rebuild or refresh is performed, because no exclusion filter is created for their path.

    Add an exclusion filter

    The folders and documents are subjected to an exclusion filter. However, they are not deleted until the next refresh or rebuild.

  3. Click Apply Changes.
