M-Files increases the productivity of knowledge workers, ensures a seamless digital experience, strengthens collaboration, enables business continuity, and reduces business risk. The M-Files connector makes it possible to surface content stored in M-Files into a single consolidated search index, along with content from other repositories, so that search results can be surfaced as a single unified set with appropriate relevancy raking and faceted navigation.  It only requires read access, and there is no need to install any software on M-Files. This results in seamless and simultaneous access to all M-Files content. Common and consistent metadata can be created across all sources using BA Insight’s Classification Software to provide enhanced findability and navigation.

The M-Files Connector:

  • Enforces document security, based on access permissions in M-Files
  • Supports both full and incremental crawls
  • Indexes with very high throughput
  • Information remains in M-Files and the search index contains a pointer back to the source directory

Future-proof Your Investment

As new versions of Azure Cognitive Search, Elasticsearch, AWS Elasticsearch, Amazon Kendra, Solr, 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.
