Clear GenWWW/Work In Progress Queue
Content getting stuck in GenWWW due to conversion failure is one of the most common issues in WebCenter Content. Especially in a high volume content management systems, if the Inbound Refinery server fails to convert documents, it results in all subsequently submitted documents to be stuck in the Work In Progress queue. A resubmit of the content would fix the problem (if there are no underlying IBR issues). However, if you have several documents, there is no easy way to mass submit for conversion.
Easy Index is a Multi Threaded, Java program built using WebCenter RIDC API, that can bulk submit content in “Work In Progress” queue for conversion. Easy Index is a must have tool if you are a WebCenter Content Administrator managing a high volume content environment. You can use Easy Index to re-submit several thousand documents. The program will query Content Server for all documents in Work In Progress queue and resubmit each of them for conversion. The following are some of the features of Easy Index:
- Multi threaded and can clear your GenWWW queue efficiently
- Configurable thread and batch settings to allow you to control the speed
- Configurable snooze settings allow you to provide idle-time between submits (Gives IBR some breathing time to catch up)

However, metadata updates performed on a content item are not visible. This component allows you to track the metadata changes of your content and see the following details:
