The Global Search powered by Solr does not index and search files which are embedded through a Nextcloud Repository.
Nextcloud Repository is setupped in Moodle
Solr is setupped in Moodle, so that file indexing works
Nextcloud Repository is used to embed files in Moodle, for example as file attachments in a glossary through a Nextcloud-Link.
The Moodle Global Search (via Solr Search Engine) does not index any files embedded through Nextcloud. Therefor all Nextcloud-Embeddments are “invisible” for Moodle Global Search.
Why does this suck?
- Global Search is meant to “search everywhere on the Moodle site that you have access to”. Due to this bug it does not.
- If this bug was fixed it would provide the opportunity to refer from multiple Glossarys to an ongoing-actualized set of documents in a Nextcloud and keep all Glossarys “actualized” just by actualizing one “Glossary-Linked” file in the Nextcloud. Right now its necessary to re-upload all actualized documents in all the glossarys individually (if you need global search function to work).
What i would wish would happen?
- It would be so great if Solr-Powered Moodle Global Seach would be able to index and find “linked” Nextcloud-Files.
To any developer who this concerns i would be eternally grateful since its a huge problem for us. Cheers!
