Pre-Process Documents

You can use the Connector Framework Server (CFS) to process documents before you index them. For example, you can run Eduction, modify document fields, categorize documents, or write the documents to disk.

For more information about how to use CFS to process your documents, refer to the Connector Framework Server Administration Guide.


CFS has most of the processing functionality that is available in the deprecated IDOL IndexTasks component. HPE recommends that you use CFS to process your documents before indexing where possible, instead of the IndexTasks IDOL component.

For information about how to convert an existing IndexTasks installation to use CFS, refer to the IndexTasks to CFS Technical Note.
