On this page:
Step 1. Launch Aspire and Open the Content Source Management Page
Step 2. Add a new File System Content Source
To specify exactly which shared folder to crawl, create a new "Content Source".
Step 2a. Specify Basic Information
Step 2b. Specify the Connector Information
Step 2c. Specify Workflow Information
Step 3: Initiate a Full Crawl
Now that the content source is set up, the crawl can be initiated.
- Click on the crawl type option to set it as Full. ("Incremental" is the default so the first time it'll work like a full crawl).
- After the first crawl, set it to Incremental to crawl for any changes done in the repository).
During the Crawl
- Click Refresh on the Content Sources page to view the latest status of the crawl.
- The status will show RUNNING while the crawl is going, and CRAWLED when it is finished.
- Click Complete to view the number of documents crawled so far, the number of documents submitted, and the number of documents with errors.
If there are errors, you will get a clickable "Error" flag that will take you to a detailed error message page.
Step 4: Initiate an Incremental Crawl
If you only want to process content updates from the File System (documents that are added, modified, or removed), then
- Click Incremental instead of Full. The File System connector will automatically identify only changes which have occurred since the last crawl.
- If this is the first time that the connector has crawled, the action of the "Incremental" button depends on the exact method of change discovery.
- It may perform the same action as a "Full" crawl (crawling everything), or it may not crawl anything. Thereafter, the Incremental button will only crawl updates.
