The next release is scheduled for December.  The feature would become
available when complete on the dev_1x branch.  I am very busy at this time
so I doubt that would be possible in less than a few weeks.

    Hi Karl,

we really need such URL Mapping facility.

We also strongly believe that it could be very useful for the whole

so we are going to create a ticket for that.

Nevertheless our main concern is about the timeline: which is your estimate

a possible release date for the facility at issue?

Hi Luca,

User name mapping is useful only in the context of document authorization.
>From your description of the problem, that has nothing to do at all with
the actual problem you have, which, if I may restate, is to map the URL of
a crawled Web document from its original form to a new form, where there
are no trailing "/" characters.

To do what you are looking to do, you do not need any authority groups or
authorities.  But you do need some facility for mapping URLs, either in the
web connector itself, or in the solr connector, or possibly in a
transformation connector.  Unfortunately, no such support exists in
ManifoldCF at this time; something would need to be developed.  You are
free to create a ticket for this work, which I think would best be modeled
as a transformation connector.

Hi Karl,

we are running ManifoldCF 1.6.1 with the Web Repository connector and the
Solr Output connector.

Our goal now is to remap crawled urls using the “User Mapping Connection”

To achieve this result we tried the following steps:

1.       define a User Mapping  Connection with these fields:

     User name regular expression:  (.+)(/)$

     User expression:                              $(1)

in order to remove a possible slash at the end of any url

2.       define an Authority Group

3.       define an Authority Connection, belonging to our Authority Group
and containing our User Mapping  Connection

4.       connect our Repository Connection to the Authority Group

Unfortunately this procedure is not working.

What is going wrong?

Thank you.

Best regards,
