Indexes: Index Edit View
Whenever you want to add a new one or edit an existing index, you will be redirected to the
Index Edit View. This view helps you shape the index definition by providing code-completion, formatters, C# code generator, and more.
The following actions are available in the Action Bar:
Save- saves an index on a server (if the index existed and the definition changed, then previous indexing data will be lost),
Add- you can add another mapping or reducing function, define field, or spatial field, and determine max index outputs,
Format- perform code formatting for mapping and reducing functions,
Query- edit only - redirects to the Query View,
Terms- edit only - redirects to the
Terms Viewwhere you can view current index terms,
Copy- opens a dialog where you can copy an index definition,
Generate C#- creates an index definition class in C#,
Refresh- fetches an index definition from the server,
Delete- removes an index
A new feature in v3.5 is being able to rename an index without needing to re-run the indexing process.
To rename an index, make sure you're in the edit view and change the index name in the text box. Click save.
A warning message will be displayed asking whether to rename or create a new index.
