Jive 5/SBS/Clearspace Connector


The Coveo connector for Jive 5, SBS, and Clearspace allows to index and integrate the content of your Jive, SBS and Clearspace communities into your Coveo unified index, making it easily searchable by end-users.

Jive 5/SBS/Clearspace Connector Guide

Note: The Jive 5/SBS/Clearspace connector was formerly known as the Jive connector. With the April 2013 monthly release, the new Jive connector must be used to index Jive 6+ content (see Jive Connector) .


The features of the Jive 5/SBS/Clearspace connector are:

  • Content Indexing

    The Jive connector retrieves and indexes following Jive object types:

    • Spaces (also known as Communities)

    • Projects (with related Tasks and Checkpoints)

    • User profiles

    • Social groups

    • Private messages

    • Documents (private and public)

    • Discussions (private and public)

    • Blog posts (for spaces, projects, users, social groups and system blogs)

    • Announcements

    • Polls

    • Comments (for documents, blog posts, and polls)

    • Attachments (for documents, blog posts, and discussions)

    • Tags and categories (formerly known as tag groups)

    • Phrase substitution

  • Security

    The connector indexes the permissions on Jive objects when the user and group names defined in Jive match entries in Microsoft Active Directory. Consequently, Coveo search results only contain Jive objects that the end-user can access within the Jive communities.

  • Incremental refresh

    The connector periodically queries Jive for the latest edits, keeping the index content up-to-date.
