Subject Re: DIH import and postImportDeleteQuery
Date Wed, 25 May 2011 17:53:48 GMT
Hi Ephraim,

Thank you so much for the input.
I was able to find your thread on the archives and got your solution to

In fact, when using $deleteDocById and $skipDoc it worked like a charm. This
feature is very useful, it's a shame it's not properly documented.
The only downside is the one you mentioned that the stats are not updated,
so if I update 13 documents and delete 2, DIH would tell me that only 13
documents were processed. This is bad in my case because I check the end
result to generate an error e-mail if needed.

You also mentioned that if the query contains only deletion records, a
commit would not be automatically executed and it would be necessary to
commit manually.

How can I commit manually via DIH? I was not able to find any references on
the documentation.
