Make ui search faster with index
To perform faster searches using the UI search box in AgileApps user interface, use indexing. You can enable indexing only for the parent objects. The child objects inherit the indexing setting of the parent objects. Therefore, you do not see indexing options for child objects. Select an indexing option:
  • Btree - Use a balanced search tree index.
  • Full Text - Use a full-text search index. This performs faster searches than Btree indexing.


Note: Full-text indexing is available only with MySQL version 5.7 or above.

  • If you use full-text indexing, provide the entire word when you perform a search.
  • Full-text index includes words that are at least 3 characters. You can change this value by adding innodb_ft_min_token_size parameter in the MySQL database configuration file my.ini. For example, innodb_ft_min_token_size=2.
  • The NDB cluster does not support full-text indexing.
  • Only those fields that are selected in the Record Identifier Fields for an object using the Record Locator support full-text indexing.
  • Full-text indexing requires extra space for storing the index.
  • None - The system does not perform indexing. This is the default selection.
CMIS Document Type
Type the name for the custom document type. You can add a custom document type at the tenant level as a fallback option. If you use Alfresco as your external document storage system, then append D: to the custom document type. For example, D:<custom_document_type_name>.


Note: This option is available only when you enable the CMIS Configuration by going to Settings > Administrator > Account Management > External Document Storage



  • Enabled by default, these options determine if the specified action is available for the object

  • To disable an action, uncheck the checkbox
  • These selections work with Custom Access Criteria options in the Access Control section
  • Add: Add records to the object, enabled by default
  • Retrieve: Access records individually or via Views/Reports, enabled by default
  • Update: Update records in the object, enabled by default
  • Delete: Delete records from the object, enabled by default
