Documentum story – Change the location of the Xhive Database for the DSearch (xPlore)

By | Entreprise content management | One Comment

When using xPlore with Documentum, you will need to setup a DSearch which will be used to perform the searches and this DSearch uses in the background an Xhive Database. This is a native XML Database that persists XML DOMs and provide access to them using XPath and XQuery. In this blog, I will share the steps needed to change the location of the Xhive Database used by the DSearch. You usually don’t want to…

xPlore list all ids from xhive

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

I went into a case that I found a kid of ‘Ghost’ index which I may present in another blog. But to summarize I had to get the full list of indexes from the xPlore server. The problem is that there isn’t such a list easily accessible. Hence I wondered, all indexes are stored in a database, what if I could query this database directly? So I chose this way, and finally found out some…

In many documents you’ll have text with apostrophes or special characters that you want to search on. But unfortunately by default the D2 search will return nothing when you enter apostrophes directly into the search bar. The xPlore will replace special…

Documentum upgrade project: Wrong icons in D2 search results with xPlore

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

After migrating from “Fast” to “xPlore” Documentum full-text search engine, our team discovered wrong icons in D2 search results. Documents in checked-out state continued to be displayed with the normal icon, even if xPlore indexed attribute value for “r_lock_owner”. This attribute contains the user name who has checked-out the document. In the following picture, you can see the search result with the wrong icon, whereas in the “Version” window, the checked-out icon appears for the…

Documentum upgrade project – from FAST to xPlore

By | Application integration & Middleware | No Comments

We planned to do our full production upgrade in a weekend – and one part was the replacement of FAST by xPlore. As we had to index more than 10 millions objects, we had to find a solution where the full repository would be indexed by Monday morning. Since we used a clone of production to validate and test our upgrade process, functions, and performance, we decided to prepare the production fulltext servers by using…
