Subject Re: sharepoint crawler documents limit
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2019 17:14:37 GMT
If the are all in one document, then you'd be running this code:

>>>>>>
        int startingIndex = 0;
        int amtToRequest = 10000;
        while (true)
        {

com.microsoft.sharepoint.webpartpages.GetListItemsResponseGetListItemsResult
itemsResult =

itemCall.getListItems(guid,Integer.toString(startingIndex),Integer.toString(amtToRequest));

          MessageElement[] itemsList = itemsResult.get_any();

          if (Logging.connectors.isDebugEnabled()){
            Logging.connectors.debug("SharePoint: getChildren xml response:
" + itemsList[0].toString());
          }

          if (itemsList.length != 1)
            throw new ManifoldCFException("Bad response - expecting one
outer 'GetListItems' node, saw "+Integer.toString(itemsList.length));

          MessageElement items = itemsList[0];
          if (!items.getElementName().getLocalName().equals("GetListItems"))
            throw new ManifoldCFException("Bad response - outer node should
have been 'GetListItems' node");

          int resultCount = 0;
          Iterator iter = items.getChildElements();
          while (iter.hasNext())
          {
            MessageElement child = (MessageElement)iter.next();
            if
(child.getElementName().getLocalName().equals("GetListItemsResponse"))
            {
              Iterator resultIter = child.getChildElements();
              while (resultIter.hasNext())
              {
                MessageElement result = (MessageElement)resultIter.next();
                if
(result.getElementName().getLocalName().equals("GetListItemsResult"))
                {
                  resultCount++;
                  String relPath = result.getAttribute("FileRef");
                  String displayURL = result.getAttribute("ListItemURL");
                  fileStream.addFile( relPath, displayURL );
                }
              }

            }
          }

          if (resultCount < amtToRequest)
            break;

          startingIndex += resultCount;
        }
<<<<<<

What this does is request library content URLs in chunks of 10000.  It
stops when it receives less than 10000 documents from any one request.

If the documents were all in one library, then one call to the web service
yielded 10000 documents, and the second call yielded 10000 documents, and
there was no third call for no reason I can figure out.  Since 10000
documents were returned each time the loop ought to just continue, unless
there was some kind of error.  Does the job succeed, or does it abort?
