Subject Re: Forced Metadata Transformation Connector - does it update document metadata/properties?
Date Mon, 16 May 2016 14:37:40 GMT
Hi Ashutosh,

The file system output connector does not have any way of writing metadata
to the file system.  It can only write binary document content.  If you
want to record metadata extracted from a file you will need to select a
different output connector (or write your own).
