Advanced search on custom model properties has no results

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

I am really at a loss here and could not find a solution to my problem here in the forums even though it seems others may have had similar problems.

I am running an Alfresco 6.1.2 stack including alfresco-search-services 1.3.0.1 in a dockerized environment. I really want to use records management so my customized stack is based on this: https://github.com/Alfresco/records-management/blob/master/rm-community/rm-community-share/docker-co...

Due to infrastructure requirements I did some small modifications in terms of logging and modified the containers to run with different uids since we wanted the containers' users to map to preexisting users on our host machines.

All that seems to run just fine but when I define a custom model and run advanced search on one of my custom types, I always get no results unless I put an asterisk ( * ) in one of my custom properties. When using an asterisk I get all the documents of my custom type. This is a problem because a requirement in our case is for users to be able to search for documents using the defined custom properties. Has anyone encountered this problem and/or knows how to solve it?

My custom model looks something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<model name="my:invoices"
xmlns="http://www.alfresco.org/model/dictionary/1.0">

<description>Content model for My Invoices</description>

I deployed the model using the dynamic approach (https://docs.alfresco.com/6.1/tasks/deploy-dynamic.html) since it seemed to be the easiest way.

To make the model accessible in share, I added the following to my share-config-custom.xml :

<!-- Advanced search config -->
<config replace="true" evaluator="string-compare" condition="AdvancedSearch">
<advanced-search>
<!-- Forms for the advanced search type list -->
<forms>
<form labelId="search.form.label.cm_content" descriptionId="search.form.desc.cm_content">cm:content</form>
<form labelId="search.form.label.cm_folder" descriptionId="search.form.desc.cm_folder">cm:folder</form>
<form labelId="my_invoices.type.my_customerInvoice.title" descriptionId="search.form.desc.my_customerInvoice">my:customerInvoice</form>
<form labelId="my_invoices.type.my_serviceProviderInvoice.title" descriptionId="search.form.desc.my_serviceProviderInvoice">my:serviceProviderInvoice</form>

I am fairly certain that my solr index works properly because when I open the node browser and run a cmis query like "select * from my:customerInvoice where my:customerNumer=<some existing number>", I get the expected result.

But when I try to do the same in advanced search by putting the number in the customerNumber search field, I get no results.

I would greatly appreciate any idea as to how I could resolve this issue. Thanks a lot!

Kind regards,

Dennis

Re: Advanced search on custom model properties has no results

It should work, as the indexes for each property is by default enabled. Not sure if the documents which has custom properties are indexed or not. See if you can do a quick search for those documents based on name, tile etc. 

A quick trick could be, to update any of the properties e.g. title, description etc and save the document. It will retry to index again. And then try to search in advance search again after a gap. 

If it is still not working then try and do a full re-index if you do not have much content.

Also, Can you try to update and re-deploy your content model by adding index config. and see if it works ?

Re: Advanced search on custom model properties has no results

Hi,

In my case, running Alfresco 5.2, I had to re-generate Solr indexes, but I'm in doubt because -as you say- NodeBrowser return results.

I guess there are no errors in your log files, right?. 

Regards,

Re: Advanced search on custom model properties has no results

Hi,

the logs to the standard output the containers produce do not show anything noteworthy as far as I can tell. But I have to admit that the default logging level does not result in a huge amount of logs. I already tried turning the solr logging level up and could not find anything that hints in the direction of my problem. I guess, I will try to turn up the logging level of share and the repository service and see if I can find something there.

Thanks for your input.

Kind regards,

Dennis

Re: Advanced search on custom model properties has no results

Jump to solution

Hi, 

thanks for your reply. This change is apparently not incremental which makes things a little tricky. But I will try it anyway. Just so I understand your fix better: Why would explicitly enabling indexing be necessary? The documentation states that when no <index>-Tag is defined on a property, the following default is assumed:

<index enabled="true">
   
<atomic>true</atomic>
   
<stored>false</stored>
   
<tokenised>true</tokenised>
</index>

Is the documentation wrong or am I just misunderstanding things? See: https://docs.alfresco.com/6.1/references/dev-extension-points-content-model-define-and-deploy.html

Kind regards,

Dennis

Yes, Documentation is correct. You don't have to explicitly enable it. You can see i have set the tokenised value to false which is default true.

Thank you so much! I have no idea why but setting tokenized to "false" did the trick.

Re: Advanced search on custom model properties has no results

It could be possible that the values you are using are getting tokenized and when you are searching it expects the values to be provided as tokens. When you set the tokenised to both then it works for both cases. When tokenised is set to true then it tries to index the values as tokens based on space, special chars and punctuation etc. Enabling the debug logs would show what values are being sent in the query so you can identify the problem in a better way.

This is what the docs days:

Solr/Lucene index configuration. The indexing behaviour of each property can be configured. If we do not configure any indexing behaviour then the default configuration is:

<index enabled="true">   <atomic>true</atomic>   <stored>false</stored>   <tokenised>true</tokenised></index>

This basically means that the default index configuration for properties is as follows:

  • Index the value of the property (enabled="true")
  • Atomic is not used when Alfresco Content Services uses Solr for search. The default value is there to allow the continued use of the built in Lucene indexing engine when customers do not want to or cannot switch to Solr. With Solr the index is eventually up-to-date with the database.
  • The property value is not stored in the index (<stored>false</stored>). This property is not used with Solr either, all fields are store in the new cached content store on the Solr side.
  • The property value is tokenized when it is indexed (<tokenized>true</tokenized>), so if the value is "Company Confidential" it will be tokenized into two strings that will be indexed separately, which might not always be what you want. You can also use false, which will just tokenize the value as one item. Further on, it also possible to set it to both, which means that "Company Confidential", "Company", and "Confidential" will be in the index.
