Available Coveo Cloud V2 Connectors
A connector is a Coveo Cloud module that establishes a connection with a specific repository type to access its content to be indexed, as well as its content permissions (see Coveo Cloud V2 Indexing Pipeline). Coveo Cloud offers a variety of connectors to allow you to index a wide range of enterprise content.
The following table presents:
The system versions supported by each connector, when applicable.
The content security options supported by each connector (see Content Security).
Links to more information.
Some content types can be retrieved using different methods, depending on where the data is located and how you want Coveo to retrieve it (see Content Retrieval Methods).

Note 1: N/A indicates that the repository indexed by a source does not have a version (e.g., a web page) or that the repository version changes frequently (e.g., for cloud repositories).
Note 3: To make this content searchable, you must install the Coveo On-Premises Crawling Module (see Coveo On-Premises Crawling Module).
Note 4: Some permission systems are not officially supported by Coveo Cloud. A custom project may therefore be required to index your source permissions. So, if you want to create a secured source, contact the Coveo Support team.
Note 5: With Salesforce sources, there is no Content security parameter, so the Secured option equivalent is the Users following system permissions option in the Security tab of the Add/Edit a Salesforce Source panel (see Security - Tab and Add or Edit a Salesforce Source).
Note 6: With Salesforce sources, there is no Content security parameter, so the Shared option equivalent is the Everyone option in the Security tab of the Add/Edit a Salesforce Source panel (see Security - Tab and Add or Edit a Salesforce Source).
Note 7: With Salesforce sources, there is no Content security parameter, so the Private option closest equivalent is the Specific identities option in the Security tab of the Add/Edit a Salesforce Source panel (see Security - Tab and Add or Edit a Salesforce Source).
Note 8: Depending on the content retrieval method you choose, on-premises Active Directory permission systems may be unofficially supported by Coveo Cloud or not supported at all. If you use the Crawling Module to index SharePoint Server content, a custom project by Coveo experts may allow you to index your SharePoint Server source permissions. So, if you want to create a secured source, contact the Coveo Support team for further information. With SharePoint Server sources of the On-Premises type, on-premises Active Directory permission systems are not supported.
