Subject [jira] [Updated] (CONNECTORS-1392) Add option for Web connector to ignore robots instructions in meta tags and rel attributes
Date Mon, 27 Feb 2017 20:50:45 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONNECTORS-1392?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Markus Schuch updated CONNECTORS-1392:
--------------------------------------
    Description: 
The Web connectors already allows to ignore robots.txt by option.

With this ticket, another option is added, to allow the connector to ignore robots instructions
in {{<meta name="robots ...}} tags and {{<a ... rel="nofollow" ...}} attributes.

*First proposal (to be discussed)*

Reuse the existing "Robots.txt usage" option in the "Robots" Tab. Rename the existing options:
# Don't look at robots.txt, meta robots and rel attributes
# Obey robots.txt, meta robots tags and rel attributes for data fetches only
# Obey robots.txt, meta robots tags and rel attributes _(the default)_

The end user doc needs to be updated.
