Indexing Portal ContentLocate this document in the navigation structure


The portal indexing service enables you to index the following portal objects:

  • Pages

  • Worksets

  • Roles

  • Role folders

  • Embedded content is indexed for all iViews on Web Page Composer pages.

  • Content inside isolated iViews is not indexed.

The values of the following properties are indexed for all indexed objects:

  • Name

  • Description

  • Creation Date

  • Created By

  • You have installed Knowledge Management on the portal.

  • You have installed and configured the TREX server.

The portal only indexes nested content up to the page level. iViews on a page are indexed as part of the page. iViews lying directly under a role or folder, are indexed independently.

All roles assigned to at least one user are indexed.
