Presetting the Full Text Index Storage Location
When you install ProjectWise Design Integration Server with the option enabled, ProjectWise sets the default full text index storage location to C:\ProgramData\Bentley\pw-index-storage.
As you run text extractions, ProjectWise downloads copies of documents from the datasource and stores them in a temporary extraction folder on the ProjectWise Design Integration Server computer. For each document that gets processed, ProjectWise creates an intermediate file (*.DMSINDEX) which contains the text extracted from the document. These intermediate files get stored in a subfolder (one subfolder for each indexed datasource) under the main index storage folder. For example:
If you need the index storage to be located in a different folder or on a different drive, you can preset the index storage location using the steps below, and then install ProjectWise Design Integration Server.
- Open the Windows Registry Editor on the computer on which you are about to install ProjectWise Design Integration Server.
- Create the following
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Bentley\ProjectWise\Automated File Processing
- Under that key, create a
FtrIndexDataDir, and for its value enter the path to
the location where you want the index storage folder to be.
For example: D:\Bentley\pw-index-storage
- Close the Windows Registry
The folder specified in the FtrIndexDataDir string will be created when the first extraction occurs.
