SP Search is scalable, customizable and extendable. This session will dive into the last point: extend SP Search and feed data from external systems into its index using the Indexing Connector Framework. Indexing Connectors will be explained. It will be highlighted where you as a Dev, IT Pro or User will see it at work. We will go into the main problems: credential mapping, API limits and load. Solutions will be presented using two examples: a connector for Confluence Wikis and a prototype for Yammer enabling users to search these systems from SP.
This session was delivered at the SP24 Conference and was presented by Heinrich Ulbricht.
