Configuring File Indexing

To search data in the Live Location or Storage Location included in your IPRO , indexing must be performed.

In the IPRO Admin UI, you can set up and run a job for file indexing only, or configure a job for file archiving and simultaneous file indexing. For more information, see Configuring File Archiving.

  • If you previously configured a Direct From Source type of File Archiving job, you do not need to set up and run a separate File Indexing job to search the archived data.

  • If you intend to configure an Index Search Query type of File Archiving job, you must first set up and run a File Indexing job. With File Indexing configured, you can search archived data and perform policy based file archiving in the indexed location.

    To create a File Indexing job in the IPRO Admin UI, see steps below.

IMPORTANT
A File Index job is also called a crawler job. You must create a crawler job for each location whose files you want to index.
NOTE
To configure a crawler job for the source location, you must first configure the connection to the external data source: register the relevant application(s) with Office 365, create the required location in the IPRO Admin UI, and perform User Mapping—start with Configuring Locations.
