Index Settings

The index settings tab makes it easy to configure which attributes of a data set are searchable. By default, Koverse indexes all attributes found. Any new attributes showing up in newly imported data will also be automatically indexed. In order to make changes to your index settings, auto indexing must be turned off.

Enabling search without specifying field names allows users to search datasets using general search parameters. This increases storage usage. Disabling this feature will require users to input specific search parameters when querying a dataset to return results. This option optimizes storage usage.

To prevent a particular attribute from being indexed, and therefore being searchable, click the radio button labeled ‘Index Specific Fields’. This will allow you to select whether to index attributes by checking or unchecking the box next to each attribute. Once the set attributes to be indexed is selected, click the ‘Save’ button at the bottom of the page.

Changing the set of attributes indexed will cause a background reindexing job to be started. When this job is complete the index will have been updated to reflect these settings and any newly imported data will be indexed according to these settings. Please note that it may take several minutes for the changes to be applied.
