Searching within documents (PDF, Word, etc)

If you want text-based documents of a particular format to be searched, run this command against your database:

UPDATE FileFormat SET IsIndexable=1 WHERE FileExtension='xyz';

[where xyz is the extension of the file format you want to be indexed].

For example, if you want the text layer of PDF documents to be searched, run:

UPDATE FileFormat SET IsIndexable=1 WHERE FileExtension='pdf';

If you do not want the text to be indexed, do the opposite, e.g.

UPDATE FileFormat SET IsIndexable=0 WHERE FileExtension='xyz';

Note: you will need to run a 'reindex' from within the application after making these changes in the database, to update the search index.
