Full-text index contents of email attachments and zip files
By Kyle Hatlestad on Jul 19, 2010
If you are using UCM 11g, this functionality is already built-in and configured. But if you are using UCM 10g, you need an extra patch file. I've made a copy. This will most likely make it into future update bundle patches.
To implement the patch, create the directory <ucm dir>/classes/intradoc/taskmanager/tasks/ and place the patch file there. For handling the emails with attachments, you don't need to do anything beyond that. But for handling zip files, you'll need to change the configuration so that UCM knows to full-text index that file type as well. The easiest way is to add this configuration value in <ucm dir>/config/config.cfg (as a single line)
Make those changes, restart the server, and then rebuild the search collection if you want to catch any existing content items. Otherwise, new items will now get indexed this way.
