Subject Forced Metadata Transformation Connector - does it update document metadata/properties?
Date Mon, 16 May 2016 14:30:08 GMT

We are trying to use Metadata transformation connector with the following repo and output:

1)      Repo – sharepoint

2)      Output – Filesystem

3)      DB – HSQLDB (running the standalone example using start.jar)

We tried setting up the connector many different ways through the crawler UI but nothing seems
to have any impact on the document metadata (by metadata I mean document properties like author,
dates etc that you see when you right click a document).

I have the following questions w.r.t the connector:

1)      Are we using the connector correctly? If we are, can we get an example configuration
that works?

2)      Our requirement is to add the source path and the source file name (for example) to
the metadata either as custom properties OR in comments section OR in a separate file generated
by a custom transformation connector (I believe job run reports may provide this but the reports
aren’t downloadable in v2.4). Does ManifoldCF provide any connectors out of the box to address
this requirement? Which one?

Thanks in advance.
