Enhance the Solr search functionality for SUMA objects

Enhance the Solr search functionality for SUMA objects

We are using SUMA as special modul to manage Supplier and Supplier components. In addition we have also Solr as search engine.

The object "Manufacturer Location" is a subtype of "Supplier" and the "Manufacturer Location" has some additional attributes.

But this object and the related attributes are not searchable with the "keyword search" which is based on Solr, only a Standard search with the input of number and/or attribute values is possible for the users. This is confusing for the users, that they have to Switch the search type.

Our idea is, that if SUMA is installed, also an extension of the Solr configuration is automatically done, so that all related objects from SUMA are available in the keyword search based on the Solr index collection.

Related to PTC cases C12956308 / C13582362 and article CS165256.

Have you added the sub type and the attributes to the indexable property as mentioned in the Help Centre:

https://support.ptc.com/cs/help/windchill_hc/wc110_hc/index.jspx?id=WCSysAdminIndexSearchIndexableTy...

 

Once done you can also manage indexing from the indexing rules on the Policy administrator.

Please ensure that the attributes that have not been added to the wt.index.excludeAttributes property by any chance.

In case, this does not work for you, you can also try customizing the indexing behaviour by following these instructions:
