Configuring Pipeline Indexing Options

You can configure many general options that will apply to any Repository using a specific pipeline. These include Indexing, Thumbnail and Geometry settings as shown below:


These options control the types of information included with each record.

Check the boxes to select the types of information to index:

  • Referenced Data
    In some cases, items in your index can refer to additional data stored in a separate location. This additional data is Referenced Data, and includes all of the items that your indexed data refer to or draw information from. 
  • Index Access Control Information
    This setting enables Voyager to add access control list (ACL) information from Windows Active Directory directly to the index for every record where available
  • Index Debug Information
    If you are troubleshooting issues with the Voyager support team, use this option to  include debug information in the index
  • Index Extended File Attributes
    This will extract extended file attributes from data records. Extended file attributes can include the author of a document, the character encoding of a plain-text document, a checksum, cryptographic hash or digital certificate.


These options control whether or not to create Thumbnails and when they should be generated. There are three options for creating Thumbnails:

  • Choose Default Image  to create Thumbnails using default settings for the type of content being indexed, depending on the type of content being indexed
  • Choose Do Not Build Images to skip creating Thumbnails (can be useful if the Repository is very large and creating Thumbnails would both slow down indexing as well as taking up large amounts of storage space)
  • Select Use Basemap to choose and configure a Basemap 


Controls how much detail is included in the geometry of a record.

Choose how much to generalize Geometry using the slider. The generalization value ranges from 0 to 1.

  • A value of 0 specifies no generalization and results in the original geometry with full detail (can be very noisy)
  • A value of 1 specifies full generalization and results smoothing of the bounding box with less detail (noise)
  • Values in between are scaled into that spectrum moving from gradually less detail as values move from 0 to 1
