Indexing a Database Using a Configuration File
Considering that the required URI field is used as the underlying link of a search result, it is important to determine where a user is redirected when a result is opened.
- Best case scenario, a Web interface displays the results of the search, making it easy to recreate the address of a record page with fields from your database.
- Worst case scenario, the users are not redirected when they click on a search result.
Note: If the Open results with cached version option is selected, the document automatically opens in the Quick View (see Configuring and Indexing a Database Source).
To setup a configuration file
Create an XML-formatted configuration file and save it on the Coveo server. It is possible to create one from scratch or from the provided sample (see Example of a Configuration File for the Database Connector).Note: It is recommended to save it in the CES configuration folder ([Index_Path]\Config, by default C:\CES6\Config).
Create a database source and specify the path of the configuration file using the Configuration File Path source parameter (see Configuring and Indexing a Database Source).
