I have this setup in a file cabinet:




End Date

So, if  a new document is added with metadata "John", "Doe" and "End Date" is it possible to add metadata to "Status" on all documents that has Firstname "John" and Lastname  Doe" and an "End Date" with Autoindex?

Yes. Your Autoindex job will iterate the file cabinet using the filter "Status = something, FirstName = "John", Lastname = "Doe", "EndDate ISEMPTY().

The match code is the DWDOCID. When it finds the documents you canthen enter a value in to Status. I'm not sure how you wish to enter a date. That migth be tricky if it is not simply an arbitrary date. Id it needs calculating then AIX will not do it.

Ok, thanks.

I think a was a bit unclear.

What I really ment was if it is possible to let autoindex set metadata to the status field on all "firstname" and "lastname" that has "end date"

Let's say if both "John Doe" and "Jane Doe" has a new document and "End date"is set on both. Further based on this, fill the status field for all other documents for both Jane and John.

Yes, in the filter for searcing in the AIX just put in First Name = NOT EMPTY() Last Name = NOT EMPTY() , end date = NOT EMPTY(), and Status = EMPTY()

This way it won't try to update documents that have the status already filled out.
