The 'Simple' search interface is the built-in search mechanism in PIAB. It uses an internal SQL search and does not rely on external Windows service. This topic describes how to configure the interface.
In the server config file 'piabws.cfg' set the interface type to 'simple' as in the following example:
<search> <!-- "simple", "indexingservice" or "windowssearch" --> <interfacetype>simple</interfacetype> <!-- Protection for too-general searches --> <protectionthreshold>1000</protectionthreshold> </search>
The 'protectionthreshold' setting is a limiter for the server to prevent users making search that return a very large set of results and degrade server performance. This setting can be tightened or relaxed to suit your setup.
