Updating the Searchable Field Properties by Using a Change List

Updating the Searchable Field Properties by Using a Change List

You can apply a change list to the repository to configure the properties of a searchable field. A change list contains a list of changes that you want to make to a target repository.
Use the
change in a change list XML file to configure the searchable field properties. The
change uses the following syntax:
<modifySearchableField id="SEARCHABLE_FIELD.<Field Hierarchy>" parentId="SEARCHABLE_CHILD.<Parent Field Hierarchy>"> <Property Name1>true|false</Property Name1> <Property Name2>true|false</Property Name2> ... <Property NameN>true|false</Property NameN> </modifySearchableField>
change uses the following parameters:
  • Field Hierarchy
    . Indicates the complete hierarchy of the field including the field name for which you want to configure the properties. Use pipes (|) between the parent-child fields.
  • Parent Field Hierarchy
    . Indicates the hierarchy of the parent field including the parent field name. Use pipes (|) between the parent-child fields.
  • Property Name1,2,...n
    . Indicates the properties that you want to configure.
The following sample change list file configures the fuzzy property for the birthdate and taxID fields:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <changeList xmlns:java="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="siperian-changelist.xsd" xsi:schemaLocation=" java.xsd" creationDate="2014-09-25T11:46:49.025-04:00" description="Compare &quot;orcl-DS_UI1&quot; (source) to &quot;orcl-DS_UI1&quot; (target)" listType="comparison" lockRequired="true" name="Source database &quot;orcl-DS_UI1&quot; vs target database &quot;orcl-DS_UI1&quot;" version="9.7.1"> <changes> <modifySearchableField id="SEARCHABLE_FIELD.Person|birthdate" parentId="SEARCHABLE_CHILD.Person"> <fuzzy>true</fuzzy> </modifySearchableField> <modifySearchableField id="SEARCHABLE_FIELD.Person|taxID" parentId="SEARCHABLE_CHILD.Person"> <fuzzy>true</fuzzy> </modifySearchableField> </changes> </changeList>
For more information about how to apply a change list, see the
Multidomain MDM Repository Manager Guide
After you configure the properties of the searchable fields, ensure that you restart the application server.
