Hi Karl,
you’ve been faster than light!
Thank you so much, we’ll test your patch asap.

Hi Luca,
I've created the ticket CONNECTORS-1022.  I ported the URL Mapping facility from the RSS connector
to the Web connector.  There's a patch attached.  Please see if this works for you.

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 community,
so we are going to create a ticket for that.
Nevertheless our main concern is about the timeline: which is your estimate about
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” utility.
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,
