[389-users] Re: Default browsing index generation

in the web UI, it should be under "Database | Suffixes | dc=xx | VLV Indexes"

to create a VLV index "Database | Suffixes | dc=xx | VLV Indexes | Create VLV Index"

to re-index an existing VLV index "Database | Suffixes | dc=xx | VLV Indexes |  select an existing VLV index | Action=Reindex VLV Index"
-> popup window "Are you sure you want to reindex this VLV index?
Successfully completed VLV indexing

using the command line, for example with an instance-name called m1:

create some "dummy-non-sense-example" VLV index:
dsconf m1 backend vlv-index add-search --name=test1 --search-base=ou=people,dc=example,dc=test --search-filter=carlicense=6ZBC246 --search-scope=2 dc=example,dc=test
dsconf m1 backend vlv-index add-index --sort roomNumber --parent-name test1 --index-name indextest1  userroot

dsconf m1 backend vlv-index list userroot
( nothing )

dsconf m1 backend vlv-index reindex --index-name carlicense-index --parent-name carlicense userroot
Index task index_vlv_12292021_162709 completed successfully

We're looking at 389 DS v1.4. Is there an equivalent in the linux 8 cockpit to the feature that used to exist in the v 1.3 management console such that it can create default browsing indexes?

In the old GUI it was simply a case of right-click and go which did offer a certain level of convenience. So far I have not found an equivalent in cockpit.


Currently most of my potential LDAP clients are unable to browse the directory with the usual "Unwilling to perform: search is not indexed".
