Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

Start IR Asynchronous mode
Applies to User Roles:
Asynchronous IR means that instead of every session directly updating IR indexes as data is updated, the IR index changes are logged to an internal table (irqueue), and a background process performs all the IR index updates separately.
To start asynchronous IR:
- Stop all Service Manager servers running a horizontal scaling or classic load manager implementation.
- Open the Service Manager initialization file (sm.ini) on each system and add the following line.
Note: You must add this parameter to each system running in a horizontally scaled implementation so that each server knows that the IR process is running asynchronously.
- Save the initialization file.
- Open the Service Manager configuration file (sm.cfg) on the system running the load balancer process and add the following line.
- Save the configuration file.
- Restart the Service Manager servers.
