Index Documents Directly into IDOL Server

This section describes how to index documents from a connector directly into IDOL Server.

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 Vertica database. For information about sending documents to CFS, see Send Data to Connector Framework Server
