Search and SpotIQ settings

You can update the search settings and SpotIQ settings from this page.

Changing these settings results in a service interruption for all users for approximately 2 minutes. To minimize disruption, consider making your changes during a scheduled maintenance window.

Under Search settings, you can configure ThoughtSpot’s indexing behavior, and enable or disable summaries and headlines.

To learn more about ThoughtSpot’s default indexing behavior, refer to Manage suggestion indexing.

To manage search settings, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Edit button in the Search Settings section.

  2. Index columns: Click on the toggle to enable or disable ThoughtSpot’s indexing of columns in new connections. If you disable this feature, all columns from new connections are set to DONT_INDEX. Note that this change only applies to columns from new connections. You must manually set columns that already exist to INDEX or DONT_INDEX.

  3. Index frequency: Select a frequency for column indexing from the dropdown. The options are 8, 16, or 24 hours.

  4. Summaries and headlines: Click on the toggle to enable or disable the display of summaries in adhoc search. This setting only affects the display of summaries for users on the new answer experience, not the classic experience.

    This setting does not affect the display of summaries in saved objects, such as saved answers, pinned tables, or headline tiles in pinboards.
  5. Select Save changes. Alternatively, you can Reset to default. By default, ThoughtSpot indexes new columns at a frequency of 24 hours, and enables summaries and headlines.
