Creating a Crawling Module Source
Once you have started your workers, you can login to the Coveo Cloud administration console to create a content source (see Typical Crawling Module Use and Logging in to Coveo Cloud V2). The following on-premises content can be crawled using the Coveo On-Premises Crawling Module (refer to the source-specific documentation for further information):
- Confluence Self-Hosted
You can configure a Database source through the Coveo Cloud administration console if you use a 64-bit driver to connect to your database. If you use a 32-bit driver, you must use the Coveo Cloud V2 Platform API and a JSON source configuration (see Creating a Crawling Module Source Using the Source API).
- File System
- Jira Software Self-Hosted
- Jive Server
- OpenText Content Server
- SharePoint Server
You can retrieve permissions for sources based on any of the above connectors, except for Sitemap and Web sources (see Coveo Cloud V2 Management of Security Identities and Item Permissions). To create a secured source and take permissions into account in your Coveo Cloud search page, contact the Coveo Support team (see Content Security). When creating a secured Confluence Self-Hosted, Jira Software Self-Hosted, or Jive Server source, you must also download a plugin (see Installing the Coveo Plugin for Atlassian Confluence, Installing the Coveo Plugin for Atlassian Jira, or Installing the Coveo Plugin for Jive).
You can also use the Coveo Cloud V2 Platform API to send Coveo the content you want to make searchable (see Source API). However, this source creation method does not support permissions, i.e., the source created cannot be of the
securedtype (see Coveo Cloud V2 Management of Security Identities and Item Permissions and Content Security). To create a secured source via the Coveo Cloud V2 Platform API, contact the Coveo Support team.
- Review the default update schedule and optionally change it to better fit your needs (see Edit a Source Schedule).
- Once you have created a source, you can manage it in the Coveo Cloud administration console (see Sources Page).
