Indexing CMS 10.1+ Assets

  • You must have Ingeniux CMS 10.1+ installed.
    Version Notes: CMS 10.0 vs. CMS 10.1+
    The design of the InSite Search Assets tab changed in CMS 10.1+. If you have CMS 10.0 installed, do one of the following:
  • Binary assets must be published so that they can be indexed and then searched by users. To publish assets, see Publishing Assets for details

Administrators can include assets in the search index by identifying the asset's root location folder. Search returns results for all managed assets within the search folder.

Users manage binary files such as MS Word documents and PDFs in the Assets Manager. To include binary files in the search index, the system requires administrators to set the root location of the folder that contains the binary files.

Keep in mind that while administrators configure assets for indexing within Ingeniux CMS, the actual indexing takes place on the published file system. Binary assets must be published before they can be indexed and then searched by users.

In Ingeniux CMS 10, you can rename a binary asset in the same way as pages and components; however, the asset file with its previous file name remains in the index until you run a full publish. A full publish triggers the clean-up process of published items, resulting in an update of indexed items in InSite Search.
To set the root location of document assets that will be indexed for search:
  1. Navigate to Administration > InSite Search Configuration.
  2. Click the Assets tab.
  3. Click the Add Document Location plus (+) button in the Root locations of document assets to be indexed area.
    A new document location entry displays.

  4. Click Pick. The Asset Tree Folder dialog displays. Choose the root folder of the document assets to include in search results. Click Select.
    The root location folder displays in the Document Folder field.
  5. Click Select Targets to apply boosts to all or individual targets. Choose the publishing targets from the Select Target(s) dialog and click Select.
    By default, your root location selection reflects in all publishing targets.

    Select Target(s) Dialog
