Quick WebCenter Tips – Allowing Continuous Indexing During Search Index Rebuild

Issue Summary:

Performing an index collection rebuild assists in optimizing user experience and query speeds, however, many clients with large content repositories can see index rebuild ETAs in the week-to-month range. Most businesses would not be able to incur significant downtime and need to continue indexing and releasing items during the rebuild.


Modify the intradoc.cfg file found in <Domain_Home>/ucm/cs/bin. Set AllowConcurrentUpdate=TRUE and restart WCC.

Note: When migrating to a new index type, Ex. ORACLETEXTSEARCH →DATABASE.FULLTEXT, this feature is not supported.

Is your organization looking to migrate away from WCC-native legacy indexing solutions? Contact Inspired ECM to learn how we can offload your indexing solutions to separate hardware as to not impact Content Server performance.
