Some files are not searchable using advance search

Re: Some files are not searchable using advance search

you need to provide more information!

what are the visible differences between a searchable and a non-searchable document? which aspects are set? what are you searching for.

since you seem to be on enterprise you should also be able to contact alfresco support.

Re: Some files are not searchable using advance search

Firsly I appreciate your quick response.

I am searching document by its name and it gives zero result, but document is present in a particular site.We have already tried Solr re-indexing but it was not helpful. We are using alfresco 4.1.4 so we can't have alfresco support.

Is there any way to find out how many document are not searchable in alfresco.

Thanks,

Fouad

Re: Some files are not searchable using advance search

Could you please post details with example on what is searchable and what is not?

Is there any comment pattern in all non searchable documents? Ex. White space in names, Special characters in name etc..

Also check your solr.logs and see if there is any error related to indexes there.

Re: Some files are not searchable using advance search

so, if you upload a document "communityTest.txt" and you search for NAME:"communityTest.txt" you dont find it?

have you had a look in the solr console yet?

Connecting to the SSL-protected Solr web application | Alfresco Documentation

get details about 'alfresco' core. specifically fts report stats:

FTS Status Clean, FTS Status Dirty, FTS Status New

please post them or upload a screenshot

Re: Some files are not searchable using advance search

Like test.mdl is searchable while test1.mdl is not searchable.There is not any White space , Special characters in name.

When I remove extension from file name it get searched. Don't know what is problem indexing or database.

Re: Some files are not searchable using advance search

Cannot be sure about exact issue. You should check if there is any configuration change in solr indexing properties. Be sure to check if you are searching by keywords, title or name. I assume, your setup does not have any customization in advance search.

When I bump into such issues, I use node browser to validate my search query. It gives details about properties as well. Be sure to check if you the property you are searching for is having appropriate value in node browser. As Markus mentioned, try searching using attribute query.

Try performing the same search with two fresh files. May be, indexes got corrupted while you uploaded these files. Keep your eyes on logs and share log if you see issues.

Thanks,
