Index settings

Indexing is automatically configured in HCL Connections. However, when setting up indexing for your environment, you might need to perform additional configuration tasks.

Important for non-English deployments: Enabling multilingual support for Search is a mandatory post-installation step that needs to be performed before you start your HCL Connections Search server for the first time. Without multiple dictionary support, for languages other than English, Search will only return results where there is an exact match between the search term and content term. Enabling multiple dictionaries ensures better quality search results when your user base is multilingual. For more information about enabling multilingual support, see Configuring dictionaries for Search.

By default, the HCL Connections user interface is displayed in the language identified in the locale settings of the web browser being used. You can set it up to allow users to explicitly choose the language in which the product is displayed. For more information, see Enabling users to set a language preference.

You can also perform optional post-installation configuration tasks relating to indexing, such as configuring J2C authentication for Search or changing the location of the Search index.
