Denodo's Data Catalog's Capability

Can we search for the content in a PDF file by using Denodo? I tried to convert a PDF to HTML by using ITPilot and deployed it to Virtual DataPort, but still, I can only search for the column name and the file name under Data Catalog.

Hi, As long as the VDP has the data you want to search you should be able to look for it. Keep in mind that in order to search by content there has to be VDP Indexes created before hand and updated, so if you just imported the new view to the VDP and did not update the indexes Data Catalog will be unable to search that view by content. I would follow the documentation on [Search Configuration](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/data_catalog/administration/search_configuration/search_configuration#search-configuration) and [VDPIndexer Extraction Section](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/scheduler/administration/creating_and_scheduling_jobs/configuring_new_jobs/vdpindexer_extraction_section) in order to configure and set up this. Hope this helps!
