Send Data to a MetaStore

You can configure a connector to send documents to a MetaStore. When you send data to a Metastore, any files associated with documents are ignored.

TIP:

In most cases, HPE recommends sending documents to a Connector Framework Server (CFS). CFS extracts metadata and content from any files that the connector has retrieved, and can manipulate and enrich documents before they are indexed. CFS also has the capability to insert documents into more than one index, for example IDOL Server and a MetaStore. For information about sending documents to CFS, see Send Data to Connector Framework Server

To send data to a MetaStore

  1. Stop the connector.
  2. Open the connector’s configuration file in a text editor.
  3. In the [Ingestion] section, set the following parameters:

    EnableIngestion To enable ingestion, set this parameter to true.
    IngesterType To send data to a MetaStore, set this parameter to Indexer.

    For example:

    [Ingestion]
    EnableIngestion=True
    IngesterType=Indexer
  4. In the [Indexing] section, set the following parameters:

    IndexerType To send data to a MetaStore, set this parameter to MetaStore.
    Host The host name of the machine hosting the MetaStore.
    Port The port of the MetaStore.

    For example:

    [Indexing]
    IndexerType=Metastore
    Host=MyMetaStore
    Port=8000
  5. Save and close the configuration file.
