Searching documents, probably not with TREX
I'm developing a Web Dynpro application that needs to find documents according to specific "custom properties".
In this document:
<a href="https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/kmc/Using%20the%20KM%20Indexmanagement%20APIs%20for%20searching%20with%20TREX.article">Using the KM Indexmanagement APIs for searching with TREX</a>, Thilo Brandt explains how to do this using TREX... I've done some tests and it works fine.
Here is the problem, the documents I need to find are in an Approval process, and as far as I know TREX indexes only "Released" documents, but I need to show in the result search any document, no matter it's status...
Question #1. Is there a way of configuring TREX so it let's me search any document, even In progress Status?
If this is not the case, what is the best way of doing this, I've read about recursive search but I don't know how efficient they are...
Here's a document I just found:
<a href="https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/05c7e2ae-0a01-0010-ca98-fe42dbe05045">KM Search and Replace: Web Dynpro Java KM-API Example</a>
Any help please!

You are right. In Content Management->Report->you can find: Approval Maintenance report
This report searches for documents and folders that are subject to an approval process. For example, you can find all documents that are to be released, find all folders with empty approver lists or steps, or search for folders involving specific approvers and optionally replace those by other users.
Perhaps, this report help you or you can modify it, I mean develop a new one.
