Watched Folders Indexing

Watched Folders Indexing is the area in the tree view of Management Studio’s Indexing section (see “Watched Folders Indexing”) used for viewing, correcting errors in documents and retrying the importing and storing of documents which have failed indexing in Automated Indexing (See “Automated Indexing”).

Note: You must have Permission configured to allow you to perform Watched Folders Indexing. If you do not have permission, Indexing may not be displayed in the tree view. See “Users and Groups”  and “Permissions Inheritance” for more information.



The buttons and headings in the Watched Folders window are described in Table 128.
