I'm currently trying to index a file, that sits outside of EPiServer following the example below. The object is index and i can see it in Find 'Overview'. However the SearchAttachmentText$$string field is missing and i can see the Attachment$$attachment. This leads me to the impression that Find isn't recorgnising the Attachment property. Not sure what is happening, however i need support to get his working.
It may be worth reading this: http://world.episerver.com/blogs/viktor-sahlstrom/dates/2016/1/improving-search-relevancy-for-attachments/. Sounds like you may beed a custom filter to extract the content.
Thanks for your reply, I hve see this link and i think you're proberly right. However i'e already installed the adobe filters and i'll instead try with the PDF-XChange Viewer too.
I has a little break thought over the weekend, helpby the url below. I can get the pdf into microsoft indexing server. So i know their searchable.
However, do you know if Microsoft indexin server is use or if this is a custom implementation? Also the url i send thought indercates that any obect can contain the Attachment? is this this the case or does it need to be a MediaData Type.
