If you wish to retrieve documents based on a subset of characters within a value, you can configure Application Enabler to "strip" characters to exclude from the search using the Strip tab. For example, if a line-of-business application field contains a full phone number and you wish to retrieve OnBase documents based on area code, configure character stripping to remove all characters but the area code from the line-of-business application field.

The sequence of operation is from the top down. Application Enabler first strips spaces (if checked) then strips characters (if checked) and so on.

The following settings are available on the Strip tab:

Setting

Description

Strip spaces

Select Strip spaces to remove all spaces from the line-of-business application value, regardless of the location of the spaces. For example, if Strip spaces is selected, double-clicking on a properly configured line-of-business application field containing 2_2___16_44___(where _ represents a space) will return OnBase documents with the Keyword Value 221644.

Strip any occurrences of string

Select Strip any occurrences of string to strip all occurrences of a specific character from the line-of-business application value, regardless of the location of the character within the value. Enter the character you wish to strip in the String field. This option could be used to strip all dashes from a Social Security Number or an account number.

Note:

Values are case sensitive.

Strip from beginning

Select Strip from beginning(where Number of characters represents the numeric value you specify) to strip a specific number of characters from the beginning of a value. For example, Strip 5 Characters from Beginning could be used to strip 3-digit area code enclosed in parentheses (###) from a telephone number.

Strip from end

Select Strip from end(where Number of characters represents the numeric value you specify) to strip a specific number of characters from the end of a value.

When your selection is complete, click OK to return to the Keyword Types Configuration screen. Define character-stripping options for each keyword that requires character stripping. Click Next to continue configuring Application Enabler.
