Subject Re: Clean checkbox on DIH
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 12:53:12 GMT
Thanks Shawn for your clarifications,

I think showing a confirmation message saying that "The whole index will be
cleaned" when the clean option is checked will be good.

I always remove the check from the file
/opt/solr/server/solr-webapp/webapp/tpl/dataimport.html after installing
solr but when I upgraded it this time forget to do that and press Execute
with the check and the whole index cleaned.

And for the dataimport I always use the old UI cause the new UI doesn't
show the live update and sometimes doesn't show the configuration. I think
there are many bugs on the new UI.
