Workflow commands on Windows

Managed by | Updated .

Background

This article describes how to chain workflow commands in Windows.

Process

If you chain workflow commands together in Windows they can't be separated with ';' but rather rather '&&' is required as the separator.

Funnelback distorts this command if it has parameters (e.g. trying to kill and then scope the index). If you need to specify multiple commands, group them in a batch script. For example: $SEARCH_HOME\conf\COLLECTION\@workflow\post-index.bat

:: Author: Funnelback consultant
:: Description: Script for post_index_command
:: Version: 0.1
:: Last update: 5th August 2011
:: Kill specific pages from the index
\bin\padre-fl.exe \data\<COLLECTION>\offline\idx\index \conf\<COLLECTION>\kill-exact.cfg \-exactmatch \-kill
:: Scope the collection as normal
\bin\padre-gs.exe \data\<COLLECTION>\offline\idx\index \conf\<COLLECTION>\gscopes.cfg 0 \-separate

If you want to make use of the CURRENT_VIEW and COLLECTIONname variables from within your script you should pass them in as parameters. is the only variable that is set in the global environment and available for use from your scripts.

The following can be added to collection.cfg to call the batch file

...
post_index_command=\conf\$COLLECTION_NAME\@workflow\post-index.bat
