OpenText Content Server, formerly LiveLink, is part of the OpenText Content Suite, which facilitates an agile information governance strategy designed to reduce risk and mitigate the cost of growing volumes of content in the enterprise – freeing strategic CIOs to focus on using information to drive growth and innovation.

OpenText Content Server can be deployed and managed in the optimal way for your organization. It is available on premises, across mobile devices, and in the cloud.  OpenText Content Suite is a set of enterprise content management (ECM) technologies including a platform to unite capture, document and records management, workflow, search and archiving as well as applications and add-ons such as email, eDiscovery, auto-classification, contract management and engineering document management.

With the OpenText Content Server Connector, users are able to search both Content Server and SharePoint (or another portal) with a single query.  Security defined in Content Server is automatically reflected in the search experience, which ensures that users only see content for which they are authorized. Ultimately, users can find everything they need in one place.

OpenText LiveLink Connectors for SharePoint

The connector indexes Content Server content in much the same way as the native portal content, supporting both full crawls and incremental crawls.

Our OpenText Content Server Connector leverages our Connector Framework to provide capabilities that are difficult and time consuming to implement in custom solutions:

  • High indexing throughput to reduce the time it takes for new content to be searchable.
  • Minimizes the impact on the source system so Content Server performance is not diminished.
  • Only surfaces the content that users are permitted to see.
  • Content Server retains the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers). Users expect to click on a search result and be working on the original item or document.

Future-proof Your Investment

As new versions of the search platforms are released, new features and functionality are introduced, and the same is true of new releases of Content Server. BA Insight takes on the burden of keeping the connector up to date for both Content Server and the respective 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.
