Send Data to Another Repository

You can configure a connector to send the information it retrieves to another connector. When the destination connector receives the documents, it inserts them into another repository. When documents are updated or deleted in the source repository, the source connector sends this information to the destination connector so that the documents can be updated or deleted in the other repository.

Note: The destination connector can only insert, update, and delete documents if it supports the insert, update, and delete fetch actions.

To send data to another connector for ingestion into another repository

  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 another repository, set this parameter to Connector.
    IngestHost The host name or IP address of the machine hosting the destination connector.
    IngestPort The ACI port of the destination connector.
    IngestActions Set this parameter so that the source connector runs a Lua script to convert documents into form that can be used with the destination connector's insert action. For information about the required format, refer to the Administration Guide for the destination connector.

    For example:

  4. Save and close the configuration file.
