connector

A connector is a Coveo Cloud module that establishes a connection with a specific repository type to access its content to be indexed (see Coveo Cloud Indexing Pipeline). If an item is secured, the connector also extracts the corresponding permissions from the repository, and saves them as item metadata (see Content Security and Coveo Cloud Management of Security Identities and Item Permissions). In the Coveo Administration Console, connectors are presented as sources (see Sources and connectors).
