We are constantly developing new features to improve our Enterprise Search solution. The new features are intended to help you search your documents, emails, databases and much more faster and easier.
searchIT 2.3 - Even More Features
Release Date: September 2020
PDF Preview Documents
In addition to a simple text preview, the improved document preview lets you view the first pages of a document in the original layout as an automatically generated PDF. You can now switch between text, PDF and metadata previews using our new document preview.
Search in Document Sections
To search very long documents such as books with many individual pages more precisely, we have introduced the “document section search”. Endless scrolling is now a thing of the past, even if the instance you are looking for is in the very last chapter of a book, for example. Long documents are therefore subdivided into individual blocks (document areas, e.g. 10 pages each).
Document sections are marked with the icon . Documents that have been subdivided into document sections are called “main documents” and are identified by this icon .
A click on the main documents icon will start a “look-up search” with all document areas of said main document being displayed.
The option filters can be used to filter either document areas or main documents.
To perform a search in certain fields (e.g. in the file name), a list of field suggestions can be loaded by pressing the TAB key while in the search field. Then, simply select any field suggestion with the cursor keys or the mouse pointer. Here are a few examples: There are superordinated fields that are in the namespace “all. *”, such as all.filename or all.author. There are also type-dependent fields, such as email.cc, contact.company or doc.description
Integration of the File Search Preview
Optimization of the Search Algorithm
The search algorithm is constantly being improved upon. Multiselect, umlauts, etc. are among the optimizations of version 2.3.
searchIT 2.2 - Updates
Release Date: July 2020
searchIT 2.1 - Optimization & New Features
Release Date: April 2020
The integration of the identity management software Keycloak has resulted in a multitude of new possibilities for secure authentication:
- Single Sign-On (SSO) via OpenID or SAML with internal third-party systems
- SSO with systems based on external providers such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Github or Nextcloud
- Alternative authentication methods such as “Integrated Windows authentication”
- Connection to external directory services such as Active Directory (AD), OpenLDAP, Novell
- If necessary, independent user administration (without Active Directory, etc.)
Block Extraction for Large Documents
By implementing this feature, large documents (such as product catalogs, books, publications, etc.) can now be divided into blocks (e.g. 10-page blocks). These blocks can be searched separately from the main document, which enables a faster display.
The preview has also been expanded and now enables the targeted viewing of blocks and scrolling through these smaller units.
New Connector (PST)
By integrating a PST connector, searchIT can now also index and search through PST archives.
Optimized Log Rotation
searchIT 2.1 now also has better control of the log rotation of log files.
By distributing the crawler (for indexing the data) over several nodes, further performance improvements have been achieved.
Optimization of the Backup Processes
