During Endeca Baseline Update why does applyIndex() seem to delete the Supplemental Objects ? (Doc ID 1983372.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 22, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Commerce Guided Search / Oracle Commerce Experience Manager - Version 3.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

 After running Baseline Update , the content items created in Experience Manager are visible as "supplemental objects" in Endeca jsp reference application."

The BaselineUpdate script, executes DistributeIndexAndApply.run();

DistributeIndexAndApply (Distribute the index and update the Dgraphs ) process consists of 3 steps


- DgraphCluster.cleanDirs() clears\data\dgraphs\local_dgraph_input folder and recreates it. 
- CopyIndexToDgraphServers() will pickup the contents of dgidx_output directory and make it available to *all * local_dgraph_input directory of dgraph servers. 
- It then runs applyIndex() which then seems to delete the supplemental object.   

Question - Why does applyIndex()  delete supplemental objects including indexed cartridges ?
