Turn off autopause

Searches in views pause automatically if all three of the following conditions are met:

  • The view contains a JobStatus module (for example flashtimeline, charting).
  • The view has configured JobStatus with a valid autoPauseInterval parameter (defaults to 30 seconds).
  • The URI of the view contains an auto_pause=true parameter, for example:
   http://localhost:8000/app/search/flashtimeline?auto_pause=true&q=search foo bar

The best way to build a URI with auto_pause=true is to send searches to a view using the ViewRedirector in another view. Use the ViewRedirector module to insert the URI params in your redirect. For example:

<module name="ViewRedirector">
  <param name="viewTarget">flashtimeline</param>
  <param name="uriParam.auto_pause">true</param>

Specifically, set:

<param name="uriParam.auto_pause">true</param>
