Advance search guidance on my properties

Jump to solution

Following this tutorial: http://ecmarchitect.com/alfresco-developer-series-tutorials/content/tutorial/tutorial.html
I was able to make a custom content model working and i am able to see properties on share view details and edit properties.

Thank you for this great tutorial. It is very helpful.

I wanted my custom properties to search in advance search. I followed the above tutorial and configured advance search option and search form as explained.
I am able to see the properties on advance search page but when i provide the value and search, i get 0 results.

I don't see any errors in my development environment.

Also, one thing i noticed that- search is working for properties "scSmiley Tongueublished", "sc:isActive" etc.

I have added following properties in addition to what is given in tutorial.

<property name="scSmiley TongueublishedBy">
<type>d:text</type>
</property>
<property name="scSmiley TongueublishingComment">
<type>d:text</type>
</property>

The values which i have saved for these properties are, values are visible on view details page:
-------------------------------------------------
scSmiley TongueublishedBy = Bipin Dixit

scSmiley TongueublishingComment = Published this document
-------------------------------------------------

When i submit search from advance search screen by providing the values as mentioned above for the above given properties, i see 0 results.

Can you guide me, if i am missing anything ?

Here is my full content model:

Thanks for reading the tutorial, I'm glad you found it helpful.

What you are doing should work. Maybe something is wrong with your SOLR server?

Have you tried going to the SOLR console, selecting the Alfresco core, then going to "Query" and running the search from there?

Enable these logs and see if you can find something:

log4j.logger.org.alfresco.repo.jscript.ScriptLogger=debug

log4j.logger.org.alfresco.solr.query.AbstractQParser=debug
log4j.logger.org.alfresco.repo.search.impl.solr.SolrQueryHTTPClient=debug

As Jeff suggested, check the SOLR console to see if you are able to search the properties or not.

Thank you Jeff, i checked solr and alfresco logs and I don't see any errors. Do i need to enable any special logging ? 

No i haven't check SOLR console, i will try that as well. 
Thanks again for guidance

Thanks Jeff and Abhinav. My search is working now. After i added log config, I noticed solr call having value as : Published+this+document for scSmiley TongueublishedComment property. Same was the case for Author. When i manually changed the value to "Published this document" and executed on solr admin, it worked. 

I also followed some other posts on this forum where some folks had similar issues. I changed the index tokenization config to false and restarted my app. 

all good now
