The CIFS connector will crawl content from any shared folder repository. The connector will retrieve documents stored in the shared folder and any folders contained in it.



Some of the features of the CIFS connector include:

  • Performs incremental crawling (so that only new/updated documents are indexed).
  • Fetches LDAP (including Active Directory) access control lists (ACLs) for document-level security (including users and groups).
  • Metadata extraction.
  • Is search engine independent
  • Runs from any machine with access to the given Shared Folder.
  • Designed to support early binding mechanisms and group expansion of nested permissions.
  • Filter the crawled documents by file paths using regex patterns.
  • Supports Windows/Linux/MacOS shared folders.
  • Supports Archive file processing, for more info visit Archive files processing
