Xapian should search all fields, including the documents, if EPrints can
convert the document to plain text.

The indexing code is in lib/cfg.d/search_xapian.pl.

There isn't much help for you debugging what has gone wrong with
indexing. Best I can suggest is adding this just above

my $i = $doc->termlist_begin;
print "$i, " while ++$i ne $doc->termlist_end;
print "\n";


./bin/epadmin reindex [archiveid] eprint [eprintid]

For an eprint that isn't matching.

Will show you exactly what's getting indexed for a given eprint.

All the best,
