Enable the indexing sub-role
Content Management, Content Delivery (geo-scaled scenarios only)
To enable the indexing sub-role, add
Indexing to the
role:define key in web.config as shown:
<add key="role:define" value="ContentManagement, Indexing"/>
The indexing sub-role is enabled by default in the Content Management WDP in the XP Scaled topology, and in the combined role WDP in the XP Single topology.
Indexing must be performed by one instance only. If you install additional Content Management instances, you must remove the
Indexing sub-role from those instances.
Azure Search configuration workaround
Allowing Content Delivery to perform indexing
In a geo-scaled environment with more than one Content Delivery cluster, you might have a dedicated instance of Solr or Azure Search for each region. In such a case, you should assign the indexing sub-role to a single Content Delivery instance in the region that is not being updated by the Content Management role.
