Many organizations have historically stored large volumes of data in File Shares. These File Shares often contain a wealth of information that is undiscoverable because they cannot be searched.

The BA Insight File Share Connector makes it possible to surface content from File Shares (Windows, SMB/CIFS) in a single consolidated search index, along with content from other repositories. The connector works with SharePoint Search and Azure Search.

The File Share Connector:

  • Respects File Share security. This means that users will only see documents from File Shares in their search results that they have access to in the underlying File Shares.
  • Supports both full and incremental crawls.
  • Indexes with very high throughput.
  • Keeps documents in the File Shares. The search index contains a pointer back to the original documents. This meets users’ expectations, which is to click on a search result and then work on the original item or document.

Future-proof Your Investment

As new versions of Azure Search and SharePoint Search are released, new features and functionality are introduced.  BA Insight takes on the burden of keeping the connector up to date for all supported search engines. The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is simply a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release, and installing and configuring it. If desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.

Drive Productivity

By connecting File Shares to your preferred search engine, you increase adoption of your intranet, improving organizational efficiency and productivity.

Our Aderant Connector is standard, off the shelf software that addresses the following requirements:

  • The source system retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers). Users click on a search result and are taken to their original item or document.
  • Works with documents and all other data stored within Aderant.
  • Support for very large documents.
  • High throughput is critical to the success of the implementation, and the Aderant connector indexes every desired item with a very high throughput.
  • Minimizes the impact on the source system, ensuring no impact to its performance
  • Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see.
