Issue Details

I have a large server I'm managing using DataFinder Server Edition, and I would like to reduce the number of fields I'm indexing since some don't make sense to index. How can I do that?


  1. Go to Settings » Custom Properties...​
  2. In the File, Group, or Channel tabs, in the Optimization field, select "Not optimized". Select "Excluded" if that option is available.

Additional Information

By excluding or not optimizing the field, it will not be included in the index file that is generated.

It makes sense not to optimize fields where there will be very few repeated values, such as GUIDs.
