Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-235) item description element not indexed
Date Thu, 04 Aug 2011 00:23:27 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-235:

Just to be clear, here's an example of the Solr log line for indexing one of the documents
from the above mentioned feed.  You can, of course, configure the job to map the field names
to whatever you like.  This is with no mapping whatsoever.

INFO: [] webapp=/solr path=/update/extract params={literal.source=,com_rss/feed,RSS2.0/no_html,1/&literal.category=Radio+-+Play+lists&literal.summary=I+had+a+lot+of+fun+putting+this+show+together+this+week.+Hope+you+enjoy+it,+too.&,+2011+Playlist&literal.pubdate=1311339967000}
status=0 QTime=13

I'm pretty certain you must have a metadata value set for "description" in your job, because
there is absolutely no mechanism (and never was one) for picking up the channel description
from the feed. So you will have to remove that in order to get all this to work for you.

>             Project: ManifoldCF
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: RSS connector
>    Affects Versions: ManifoldCF 0.2
>            Reporter: Kate McGonigal
>            Assignee: Karl Wright
>             Fix For: ManifoldCF 0.3
> The RSS feed's *item* description is not written to any field in the Solr index. 
> I have a typical RSS feed with the general structure:
> <rss>
>     <channel>
>         <title></title>
>         <link></link>
>         <description></description>
>         <item>
>             <title></title>
>             <link></link>
>             <pubDate></pubDate>
>             <description> *** the description I do want *** </description>
>             <author></author>
>             <category></category>
>         </item>
>     </channel>
> </rss>
> Example:
> For the RSS feed:,com_rss/feed,RSS2.0/no_html,1/
> the rss/channel/item/description field is not indexed into Solr.
> Example notes:
>   - what does get written to the Solr "description" field is the description metadata
from the website, i.e. "Jazz radio show from Winnipeg on CKUW 95.9 FM, hosted by Maurice Hogue."
in this case.
>   - on the "Dechromed Content" tab of the job, "No dechromed content" is selected. I'm
not sure if that is relevant.
