Import Process
This section describes the import process for new files that are added to IDOL Server through CFS.
Connectors aggregate documents from repositories and send the files to CFS. A single CFS can process documents from multiple connectors. For example, CFS might receive HTML files from HTTP Connectors, e-mail messages from Exchange Connector, and database records from ODBC Connector.
CFS runs pre-import tasks. Pre-Import tasks occur before document content and file-specific metadata is extracted by KeyView.
CFS runs post-import tasks. Post Import tasks occur after KeyView has extracted document content and file-specific metadata.
