[EP-tech] Re: A specific eprint doesn't get indexed

Also worth a quick check ÿÿ does the ÿÿmetadata_visibilityÿÿ flag on the eprint have the value set to ÿÿshowÿÿ?  (this should be in the other defined fields section of the admin view of the eprint, and as a field in the ÿÿeprintÿÿ table.  If this is set to ÿÿno_searchÿÿ then the item wonÿÿt appear in normal searches, browse views etc.

The problem has been set right.

As you had rightly mentioned, the problem was with the metadata_visibility value. It has now been set to 'show' and i'm able to search and browse the specific eprint, which used to be problamatic.

The sql command that I have used is:

update eprint set metadata_visibility='show' where eprintid=47379

Thank you very much,

Hi Francis,

I notice your repository is not using the Xapian search engine - if you wish to use it, check this out: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/New_Features_in_EPrints_3.3#Search_engine_plugins

If not, you may:

1- look at the indexer logs for errors on that eprint (var/indexer.log)

2- look at the eprint__* tables in the database to see if there are any index codes for that eprint

3- try "reindex" with verbose and let us know of any errors/warnings

I have noticed that a specific eprint, http://eprints.iisc.ernet.in/47379/

id not getting indexed. Repeated attempts to re-index it using the command,

bin/epadmin reindex repoid eprint 47379 is not helping. The only way this

item can be retrieved is through the admin->search items->Username


How do I get this item indexed so that it can retrieved through the simple

and advanced searches?

Many thanks for your attention.
