JCR search service configuration parameters

The following search service configuration parameters can be modified to enable and configure searching for content that is stored in the JCR database. These JCR search service configuration parameters can be modified by accessing the JCR ConfigService PortalContent resource environment provider.

To access the JCR search service configuration parameters that are stored in the JCR ConfigService PortalContent resource environment provider, complete the following steps:
  1. Log in to WebSphere® Integrated Solutions Console.
  2. Click Resources > Resource Environment > Resource Environment Providers and select JCR ConfigService PortalContent.
  3. In the Additional Properties section of the Configuration window, select Custom properties.
Important: There are many configuration parameters in the JCR ConfigService PortalContent resource environment provider that must not be modified. Do not modify any configuration parameters that are not referenced in the following list, unless you are directed to do so by HCL Software Support.
jcr.textsearch.enabled

This parameter enables or disables text search. The default value is true. Set this value to false to disable the text search run time. This parameter is required.

jcr.textsearch.indexdirectory

This parameter specifies the directory where indexes are stored, for example, /opt/IBM/WebSphere/wp_profile/PortalServer/jcr/searchIndexes. This parameter is required if text search is enabled (jcr.textsearch.enabled=true).

jcr.textsearch.PSE.type
This parameter specifies whether the search service is a local search service or a remote search service. The default value is localhost. Specify one of the following values:
localhost
This value specifies the search service as a local search service.

This value specifies the search service as a remote search service.
Notes:
  • SOAP support for remote search service was deprecated with HCL Version 8.0.
  • If you are using a remote search service, you must also specify the jcr.textsearch.EJB.IIOP.URL and jcr.textsearch.EJB.EJBName parameters.
jcr.textsearch.EJB.IIOP.URL

This parameter specifies the URL of the naming service that is used to access the WebScannerEJB, for example, iiop://localhost:2811. Specify this parameter if you are using a remote search service (jcr.textsearch.PSE.type=EJB).

jcr.textsearch.EJB.EJBName

This parameter specifies the name of the WebScanner EJB, for example, ejb/com/ibm/hrl/portlets/WsPse/WebScannerLiteEJBHome. Specify this parameter if you are using a remote search service (jcr.textsearch.PSE.type=EJB).
