Configure IDOL View Server

IDOL View Server converts original documents into HTML format for viewing in a Web browser. It can also highlight search terms in the document, when displaying a search results. Find uses IDOL View Server to create the document previews in searches.

There are two viewing modes. The appropriate one to use depends on how you index your documents:

The option that you choose depends on how you store and access your documents. If you can access all your documents by file path or URL, use the Reference Field option. If you use an external repository with its own authentication to store your documents (such as Microsoft Exchange, or Microsoft SharePoint), then you can use the Connector mode to simplify access and retrieval.

Users with the FindAdmin role can use the Settings pages to configure the IDOL View Server.
