To automatically retrieve files from a file system, create a new fetch task by following these steps. The connector runs each fetch task automatically, based on the schedule that is configured in the configuration file.
To create a new Fetch Task
[FetchTasks] section of the configuration file, specify the number of fetch tasks using the
Number parameter. If you are configuring the first fetch task, type
Number=1. If one or more fetch tasks have already been configured, increase the value of the
Number parameter by one (1). Below the
Number parameter, specify the names of the fetch tasks, starting from zero (0). For example:
[FetchTasks] Number=1 0=MyTask
[FetchTasks] section, create a new TaskName section. The name of the section must match the name of the new fetch task. For example:
[FetchTasks] Number=1 0=MyTask [MyTask]
To specify the folders that the connector checks for files, set the
||A comma-separated list of folders from which you want to retrieve files.|
||A Boolean that specifies whether the connector retrieves files in sub-folders.|
[MyTask] DirectoryPathCSVs=C:\MyFiles\,D:\MyFiles DirectoryRecursive=True
Tip: Using the
DirectoryPathCSVs parameter, you can specify paths that cause the connector to retrieve files from different types of file system (for example, NT and Netware). However, HPE recommends that you create separate fetch tasks for retrieving files from different types of file system. This ensures that Access Control Lists can be retrieved correctly.
PathNoCrawlRegexparameters. These parameters can be useful when the location specified by
DirectoryPathCSVscontains large folder structures that you do not want to index. For information about these parameters, refer to the File System Connector (CFS) Reference.
(Optional) To limit the files that are retrieved, you can use the file selection parameters. For information about these parameters, refer to the File System Connector (CFS) Reference. A file is retrieved only if it matches all of the criteria that are set. For example:
[MyTask] DirectoryPathCSVs=C:\MyFiles\,D:\MyFiles DirectoryRecursive=True DirectoryFileMatch=*.pdf,*.doc DirectoryFileModifiedSince=2012-JUN-15 00:00:01
Note: The connector saves or updates a data file for each completed fetch task. If you make changes to the configuration and want to reset the connector so that it retrieves all of your data again, see Reset the Connector.
