Add/Edit File System Source

A File System source allows you to index files shared over a network via the Coveo On-Premises Crawling Module (see Coveo On-Premises Crawling Module).

Your company has a shared network drive on which letter, Power-Point presentation, and email signature templates are available to all employees. You decide to index the whole drive to make its content searchable via your Coveo Cloud V2 powered search page.

When you have the required privileges, you can add files shared over a network to your Coveo Cloud V2 organization (see How to Share Files and Folders over a Network for Workgroups in Windows Server 2003). Your File System source can be shared, private, or secured (see Source Permission Types).

If you want to create a secured source, contact the Coveo Support team for assistance.
