I have Fess indexing a website, which have some PDFs. I’m seeing that Fess is not indexing those PDF metadata, namely its modified date. Is there a way to configure Fess to index this kind of metadata?
You need to set a metadata name to crawler.metadata.name.mapping.
This is exactly what I needed. Just to be written here, all I had to do to get the modification and the creation date from PDFs was to change the
crawler.metadata.name.mapping on the file fess_config.properties as follows:
crawler.metadata.name.mapping=\ title=title:string\n\ Title=title:string\n\ meta:modDate=modDate:string\n\ ModDate=modDate:string\n\ meta:creationDate=creationDate:string\n\ CreationDate=creationDate:string\n\
Thanks for the help!
