LegalKey Connector

LegalKey Ingestion Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise

OpenText Records Management LegalKEY Edition, often referred to as LegalKEY, provides a legal-centric approach to managing all electronic and physical records related to a client or matter.

OpenText LegalKEY has several capabilities that make it highly popular among law firms, such as:

  • Legal-Centric and Highly Intuitive Attorney Desktop Interface

LegalKEY gives law firms a single interface for the comprehensive management of all electronic and physical information related to a client or matter, regardless of the source of origin or media type including email, images, electronic documents, voice mail, and facsimiles.

In addition to LegalKey, the BA Insight software portfolio includes a number of other legal industry connectors such as Aderant, iManage Work, Elite / 3E, NetDocuments, and ProLaw.

LegalKey Connectors for Search Indexing

Organizations who leverage LegalKey can now extend the reach of this data into their existing search indexes via the BA Insight ConnectivityHub and our LegalKey Connector.

The key capabilities of the LegalKey Connector for Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, and Elastic Cloud Enterprise are:

  • 1

    Provides both full and incremental ingestion of content into the index of your choice

  • 2

    Provides all management of security, role, and access list management, requiring no specialized security software or search index add-ons

  • 3

    Supports all data types within LegalKey

  • 4

    Supports filtering of the LegalKey content, allowing administrators to define specifically which data is sent for ingestion into the search index

  • 5

    Brings all associated metadata into the search index to drive refinement and relevancy

    All content remains safely in LegalKey. The portal has only a searchable representation of documents – pointers – and users are directed back to LegalKey to launch documents found in their search result.

The benefits of including LegalKey data within your Elasticsearch, Elastic Cloud, or Elastic Cloud Enterprise are:

  • 1

    Provides enhanced search capabilities into your existing search application while ensuring the source system retains the master information

  • 2

    Indexes with a very high throughput

  • 3

    Requires no custom code, with full support and enhancements
