Web Content Manager search service

The HCL Web Content Manager search service (WCM SearchService) defines settings that control how web content is crawled and indexed for searching.

SearchService.DateFormatString
Indicates the date format to use when entering dates in search forms and for displaying search results. Enter a supported Java date format string. If this property is not set, then the default format is MMM dd yyyy HH:mm:ss z.

Default value: None

SearchService.RecrawlInterval
Indicates the interval in hours between crawling of new web content search sources.

Default value: 4

SearchService.BrokenLinksExpirationAge
Indicates the expiration age in days for broken links in new web content search sources.

Default value: 1

SearchService.MetaFields
Specifies additional elements to crawl when searching for metadata. The format for this property is elementName,key1. To specify more than one metadata field maps, use the following format: elementName1,key1;elementName2,key2;elementName3,key3. For example: metaText,meta.
  • elementName is the name of element you want to search for metadata. Any valid element with that name in a searchable site area or content item will be crawled.
  • key is the "key" that is specified in an element tag used as part of a search element design. In the previous example, the key of meta has been used. To render the content of the metaText element in a search element design, you would use the following tag: <Element context="autoFill" type="content" key="meta"/>.
Notes:
  • Only text elements and short text elements can be searched.
  • Only site areas that have been configured to be searchable will be crawled.

Default value: None

SearchService.SearchSeed.ExcludeFileAttachments
Indicates whether resource component attachments are included in the search results. If this property is set to false, the files stored in file resource elements in content items can also be searched. Files stored in file resource elements in a site area can also be searched as long as a default content item has been selected.

Default value: false

SearchService.SearchSeed.excludeExtensions
Set this to a list of file name extensions that you want to exclude from search results. Separate each item in the list with a comma.
