Subject [jira] [Commented] (CONNECTORS-1359) Ignore exception option
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2017 16:14:42 GMT


Karl Wright commented on CONNECTORS-1359:

There are dozens of different sorts of error conditions, but in the JCIFS connector we only
have access to a single kind of exception plus a text message, and we have to decide based
on that what the correct exception behavior is.

You can see the problem; there's no comprehensive list of exception texts to work off of and
therefore we're always having to deal with specific exception variants that we've never coded
for before.  These also differ from Windows version to Windows version.

>            Priority: Minor
> Currently the behaviour of the JCIFS connector and more generally all connectors is to
stop the crawling job when a problematic file is encountered (there is although a retry mechanism)

> It would be good to have the option to ignore the problematic file along with the triggered
exception to continue the job till it's completion (if at least there is no big problem like
input or output repository down)
