Adding an Open Converter

Open converters, written in .NET, VBScript, or JScript, are used to index document types not natively supported by Coveo Enterprise Search (see Converter API Home).

To add an open converter

  1. On the Coveo server, access the Administration Tool (see Opening the Administration Tool).

  2. Select Configuration > Converters.

  3. In the Converter Managers page, in the navigation panel on the left, click Open Converters.

  4. In the Open Converters page, click Add.

  5. In the Add an Open Converter page:

    1. In the Name box, enter a name to identify the open converter.

    2. In the Script File box, click to browse or enter the complete path of the open converter file.

    3. In the Script Language drop-down list, select the language in which the open converter is written.

    4. When the Script Language is set to .NET, in the Type Name box, enter the name of the class in the .NET assembly that implements the converter.

    5. If the open converter requires one or more parameters, for each parameter, in the Parameters section, click Add Parameter, and then enter the name and value of the parameter.

    6. Click Apply Changes.
