    Custom Examine DataService, auto indexing

    Hello there :-)

    Perhaps you can help me?

    I've created a custom:


        public class AddressDataService : ISimpleDataService
            public IEnumerable<SimpleDataSet> GetAllData(string indexType)
                var watch = new Stopwatch();
                var dataSetList = new List<SimpleDataSet>();
                var workplaces = Builder<Address>
                    .With(x=>x.MemberNumber = 1)
                foreach (Address workplace in workplaces)
                    var rowData = new Dictionary<string, string> {
                        { "Id", workplace.Id.ToString() },
                        { "Name", workplace.Name },
                        { "Street", workplace.Street },
                        { "ZipCode", workplace.ZipCode.ToString() },
                        { "City", workplace.City },
                        { "PhoneNumber", workplace.PhoneNumber },
                        { "CellPhoneNumber", workplace.CellPhoneNumber },
                        { "Email", workplace.Email }
                    var dataSet = new SimpleDataSet
                        NodeDefinition = new Examine.IndexedNode
                            NodeId = workplace.Id,
                            Type = "Workplace"
                        RowData = rowData
                LogHelper.Info<AddressDataService>("{0} addresses was indexed in {1} ms. ", () => workplaces.Count(), () => watch.Elapsed.Milliseconds);
                return dataSetList;

    And added it to: ExamineIndex.config:

    <IndexSet SetName="AddressIndexSet" IndexPath="~/App_Data/TEMP/ExamineIndexes/{machinename}/AddressIndex/">
          <add Name="Id" />
          <add Name="Name" />
          <add Name="Street" />
          <add Name="ZipCode" />
          <add Name="City" />
          <add Name="PhoneNumber" />
          <add Name="CellPhoneNumber" />
          <add Name="Email" />

    And to: ExamineSettings.config

     <add name="AddressIndexer" 
            type="Examine.LuceneEngine.Providers.SimpleDataIndexer, Examine"
            dataService="ProjectName.Web.DataService.AddressDataService, Fodterapeuter.Web"

    Now here is the real problem: Rebuilds every time i restart AppPool I dont wan't that, because i'm indexing 14000 addresses each time.

    is there a way to stop it from indexing on application start?

    might help... lifted from this thread...

    Examine will rebuild the indexes on startup if they don't exist. If you've disabled event handlers they will not be updated with publishing, etc... so they'll just sit there. The rebuilding is a one time thing only since they don't exist during startup. That said, you can disable that too by adding this attribute to your config:

    <Examine RebuildOnAppStart="false">

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your comment,

    Though this doesn't really help much. Since i dont wont to disable rebuild for all.

    I just wan't to disbable it for AddressIndexSet

    I can see in the UmbracoTraceLog that GetAllData(string indexType) get called on every application start, even though the temp files exist.

    Reading through the other post.

    I can see that is it not supposed to be called on application start, if the files exist.. but it is.
