Configuring File Indexing

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

In the NetGovern 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 NetGovern Admin UI, see steps below.

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.
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 NetGovern Admin UI, and perform User Mapping—start with Configuring Locations.
