Description

Populates a search engine collection with metadata and creates indexes for searching it. The engine (Solr) can search physical files of various types or a database query. Indexing database columns that result from a query lets users search the query data much faster than they could if you used multiple SQL queries to return the same data. You must define a collection using the ColdFusion Administrator or the cfcollection tag before creating indexes for the collection.

You also can index a collection using the ColdFusion Administrator. For more information on creating, indexing, and searching a collection, see Solr search examples in Developing ColdFusion Applications.

Category

Syntax

cfindex supports script style syntax: 

new index(collection="<collection_name>"); 

<cfindex 
action = "update|delete|purge|refresh|fullimport|deltaimport|status|abort|optimize" 
autoCommit = "yes|no" 
collection = "collection name" 
collectionNames= "comma-separated values of collection names"
body = "body" 
category = "category name" 
categoryTree = "category tree" 
custom1 = "custom value" 
custom2 = "custom value" 
custom3 = "custom value" 
custom4 = "custom value" 
extensions = "file extensions" 
key = "ID" 
language = "{{language}}" 
prefix = "location of documents" 
query = "query name" 
recurse = "yes|no" 
status = "status"
throwOnError="true|false"
title = "title" 
type = "type" 
URLpath = "URL">
Note:

You can specify this tag's attributes in an attributeCollection attribute whose value is a structure. Specify the structure name in the attributeCollection attribute and use the tag's attribute names as structure keys.

History

ColdFusion (2016 release): Added the parameter throwOnError.

ColdFusion 10:

  • Added new actions fullimport , deltaimport , status, abort.
  • Added the attributes autoCommit, fieldBoost , docBoost.
  • Added support for dynamic custom fields.

ColdFusion 9: Added Solr search engine support.

ColdFusion MX 7.0.1: Added the prefix attribute.

ColdFusion MX 7:

  • Added the category,  categoryTree , custom3, and custom4 attributes for the update and refresh actions.
  • Added the status attribute for the update, refresh, delete, and purge actions.
  • Removed reference to external collections.
  • Removed suggested  cflock  usage.

ColdFusion MX:

  • Changed the external attribute behavior: it is not necessary to specify the external attribute. (ColdFusion automatically detects whether a collection is internal or external.)
  • Changed Verity operations behavior: ColdFusion supports Verity operations on Acrobat PDF files.
  • Changed thrown exceptions: this tag can throw the SEARCHENGINE exception.
  • Changed acceptable collection naming: this tag accepts collection names that include spaces.
  • Changed query result behavior: the  cfindex  tag can index the query results from a  cfsearch  tag.

Attributes

Attribute

Req/Opt

Default

Description

action

Required

Null

  • update: Updates a collection and adds  key  to the index.
  • delete: Removes collection documents as specified by the key attribute.
  • purge: Deletes all of the documents in a collection. Causes the collection to be taken offline, preventing searches.
  • refresh: Deletes all of the documents in a collection, and then performs an update.
  • fullImport : To index full database. For instance, when you index the database for the first time.
  • deltaImport: For partial indexing. For instance, for any updates in the database, instead of a full import, you can perform delta import to update your collection.
  • status: Provides the status of indexing, such as the total number of documents processed and status such as idle or running.
  • abort: Aborts an ongoing indexing task.
  • commit: Changes to the search server. For instance, you can use autocommit="false" while indexing many documents. Then, use action="commit" to commit all the changes at once.
  • merge: Given multiple collections, merge them into a single collection.
  • optimize:  Re-organizes all segments in a core to a single segment. Optimization is operationally time consuming, and is not advisable if the index changes frequently. Solr reads a copy of the entire index and restructures the copy into a single Segment, resulting in a much slower operation. For more information, see Optimizing Solr Performance.

autoCommit

Optional

True

If yes, automatically commit the changes to the search server.
If no, indexed documents are not committed unless you specifically commit using  cfindex  action="commit". By default, the value is set to true.

collection

Required

Null

Name of a collection that is registered by ColdFusion; for example, " personnel ".

collectionNames Optional Null

Comma-separated values of collection names.

Note: This attribute is required when action="merge".

body

Required if type=custom

Null

  • ASCII text to index.
  • Query column names, if  name  is specified in  query .
    You can specify columns in a delimited list, for example: "emp_name, dept_name, location".
    This attribute is ignored if  type  is file or path, and is invalid if action  is delete .

category

Optional

(empty string)

A string value that specifies one or more search categories for which to index the data. You can define multiple categories, separated by commas, for a single index. If you use a query for your indexed data, this value can be the name of a column.

categoryTree

Optional

(empty string)

A string value that specifies a hierarchical category or category tree for searching. It is a series of categories separated by  forward  slashes ("/"). You can specify only one category tree.

custom1

Optional

Null

Use to index discrete values in collection records, which lets you search for specific records. By contrast, values specified in the body attribute are concatenated and searched as a body of text using the specified criteria.

If type = custom, a query column name. If  type  is file or path, a string.

Additionally, ColdFusion 10 added support for dynamic custom fields. For usage, see Solr enhancements in ColdFusion 10.

custom2

Optional

Null

Usage is the same as for custom1.

custom3

Optional

Null

Usage is the same as for custom1.

custom4

Optional

Null

Usage is the same as for custom1.

extensions

Optional

htm ,  html , cfm ,  cfml ,  dbm ,  dbml

Delimited list of file extensions that ColdFusion uses to index files, if type = "Path". "." returns files with no extension. "." returns all files.
For example, the following code returns files with a listed extension or no extension: extensions = ".htm, .html, .cfm, .cfml, *."

fieldBoost

Optional

htm ,  html , cfm ,  cfml ,  dbm ,  dbml

Boost specific fields while indexing. fieldBoost  enhances the score of the fields and thereby the ranking in the search results. Multiple fields can be boosted by specifying the values as a comma-separated list.

key

Required

(empty string)

The value specified for key depends on the type attribute:

  • If type = "file", the directory path and filename for the file,
  • If type = "path", the directory path for the location of the files.
  • If type = "custom", a unique identifier that specifies the location of the data, For a query, the name of the column that holds the primary key, for example. If not a query, an identifier such as the URL for a web page, for example.

language

Optional

Null

For options, see  cfcollection .

prefix

Optional

Null

Specifies the location of files to index when the computer that contains the K2 Search Service is not the computer on which you installed ColdFusion, and when you index files with the type attribute set to  path .

query

Optional.

Null

The name of the query against which the collection is generated.

recurse

Optional

no

  • yes: if type = "path", indexes qualified files in directories below the path specified in the key attribute.
  • no

status

Optional

Null

The name of the structure into which ColdFusion returns status information.

throwOnError Oprtional false If true, then cfindex tag throws an error while indexing documents.

title

Optional

(empty string)

Provides a title for the document if one cannot be extracted from the document.

type

Optional

custom, if query attribute is specified. Otherwise, file.

  • file: Applies action value to  filename , including  path . Expects a filename in the key attribute.
  • path: Applies action to files in a directory path that pass the extensions filter. Expects a directory name in the key attribute.
  • dih : Used for Data Import Handler. For usage, see Solr enhancements in ColdFusion 10.
  • custom: applies  action  to  custom  data; for example, to data from a query.

When type=" dih ", these actions are used:

  • abort: Aborts an ongoing indexing task.
  • deltaimport : For partial indexing. For instance, for any updates in the database, instead of a full import, you can perform delta import to update your collection.
  • fullimport : To index full database. For instance, when you index the database for the first time.
  • status: Provides the status of indexing, such as the total number of documents processed and status such as idle or running.

URLpath

Optional

(empty string)

If  type  is file or path, specifies the URL path. During indexing, this pathname is prefixed to filenames and returned from a search as the  url .

Usage

The attributes settings that the cfindex tag requires depend on whether you set the query attribute. If you set the query attribute to a valid query name, it specifies that cfindex is to index the data in the query rather than indexing documents on a disk. If you do not set the query attribute, cfindex assumes that it is indexing a file (type = file), a set of files in a directory path (type = path), or text that you provide in the body attribute (type = custom). If you set the query attribute to a valid query name, the cfindex tag creates indexes as specified by the following attributes and their values:

Type

Attribute values

File

The key attribute is the name of a column in the query that contains a full filename (including path).

Path

The key attribute is the name of a column in the query that contains a directory pathname.

 

The extensions and recurse attributes, if specified, elaborate on which files are included. If the action is delete, cfindex deletes keys for the collection.

Custom

The key attribute specifies a column name that contains anything you want; for example, the primary key value in the database. It must be unique because this is the primary key in the collection. If the action is delete, the key attribute is the name of a column in the query that contains the keys to delete.

 

The body attribute is required and is a comma-delimited list of the names of the columns that contain the text data to be indexed.

If you do not set the query attribute, the cfindex tag creates indexes as specified by the following attributes and their values:

Type

Attribute values

File

The key attribute is required and is a full pathname to a file.

Path

The key attribute is required and it is a directory pathname.

 

The extensions and recurse attributes, if specified, designate which types of files are included. If the action is delete, both the keys and the document files are deleted.

Custom

The key attribute is an identifier that specifies the key. If the action is delete, the key attribute is the document key to delete.

 

The body attribute is required and is the text to be indexed.

If type is not specified but query is set, ColdFusion sets the type to the default value of custom. If neither type nor query is set, ColdFusion sets type to the default value of file. If type equals custom, all attributes except for key and body can specify a literal value, not only a column name. This allows you to change a field to empty in the collection.

Status attribute

The status attribute provides the following information and diagnostics about the result of a cfindex operation:

Key

Type

Description

BADKEYS

Struct

A structure of keys with diagnostic messages about the indexing of these keys. If there are no bad keys, this key does not exist.

DELETED

Number

The number of keys deleted.

MESSAGES

Array

An array of diagnostic messages, including nonfatal errors and warnings. If there are no messages, this key does not exist.

INSERTED

Number

The number of keys inserted into the collection.

UPDATED

Number

The number of keys updated in the collection.
