Modifying Hidden EPiServer CMS Source Parameters

The Add Source and Source: ... General pages of the Administration Tool present the parameters with which you can configure the connector for most setups. More advanced and more rarely used parameters are hidden. You can choose to make one or more of these parameters appear in the Add Source and Source: ... General pages of the Administration Tool so that you can change their default value.

Consider adding and setting values of hidden parameters only when they apply to one or more of your EPiServer CMS sources.

ConfigFile (string)

This parameter is the full path to a custom EPiServer CMS configuration file (see Creating and Using an EPiServer CMS Configuration File).

MappingFile (string)

This parameter is the full path to a custom EPiServer CMS mapping file (see Creating and Using an EPiServer CMS Mapping File).

NumberOfRefreshThreads (integer)

This parameter is the number of refresh threads used by the source. The default value is 2.

BatchSize (integer)

This parameter is the number of items to fetch per request made to the EPiServer CMS server. The default value is 50. The minimum value is 1. A small value forces the connector to make small but frequent queries to the server. A larger value leads to larger and less frequent queries.

FileManagerConfigurationString (string)

This parameter specifies the EPiServer File Manager content to crawl. The string is made up of the starting points to crawl separated by a semicolon character. Each starting point is composed of the values for the virtual path provider Name and VirtualPath attributes (see Configuring the EPiServer CMS Source to Crawl the File Manager).

ShortCutTypesToIgnore (string)

This parameter determines one or more types of content that the connector ignores to prevent indexing content more than once. The possible values are:

  • 0 is a normal page.
  • 1 is a shortcut to another page.
  • 2 is an external link.
  • 3 is only text instead of the page.
  • 4 is a fetched data from another page.

The string is composed of one or more values separated by a semicolon character. The default value is 1;2;3.

WebServiceUrl (string)

This is the full URL to point to the Coveo Web service deployed on the EPiServer CMS installation. The default value is [StartingPoint]/WebServices/CoveoService.asmx (see Configuring the Coveo Web Service on an EPiServer CMS Server).
