The Status shows if the metadata, display pattern and all content and list items are up-to-date. You must check the status after updating schemas and display pattern, which is indicated with a red badge in the main menu.

Each of those areas shows if the information used for searching and displaying values is up to date. The states are:

  • Green: All information is up to date and performing at its best.

  • Yellow: Searches against the search index will work correctly but performance is not the best. Re-indexing operations can speed up searches.

  • Red: The search index is not up to date. Searches cannot work properly. A full re-indexing is needed.

The state is also represented via a badge in the main menu, which indicates if an update is required.

Picturepark does not require updated information to work but search results may be wrong if the information is not up-to-date. However

It is not possible to create a new index yourself. The index is part of the core development of Picturepark and therefore not configurable.

The corresponding status is mainly changed based on admin actions or edits: 

Check the Status

Check the Status

  1. Open settings

  2. Open status

  3. Find your desired status area

  4. Doubleclick to open

For the "Content and List Items" the following information is visible: 

  • state

  • contentOrLayerSchemaIds (which gives an overview of the affected Content Items, the ones which have the Schema applied)

  • listSchemaIds (which gives an overview of the affected List and always all its List Items)

  • fieldIdsToCleanup (which are the removed fields)

Update the Status

Update the Status

Such updates should be planned to be carried out outside of office hours to reduce the level of inconvenience for users. Do not trigger all updates at once (Content and List Items, Display Pattern, Search Index). The three updates all running concurrently results in long-running operations, and users may experience slow performance.

During the update, the user can still modify the schemas (Picturepark does not block additional modifications). Admins can update content or schemas while an update is in progress.

The update shall follow the order of display:

  1. Content and List Items

  2. Display Pattern

  3. Search Index

  1. Open settings

  2. Open status

  3. Find your desired status area

  4. Doubleclick to open

  5. Start the update with the corresponding button at the top

    1. "Update" for Content and List Items

    2. "Render" for Display Pattern

    3. "Reindex" for search indices
