Microsoft SharePoint Legacy Connector

Sub-sections in this topic

Deprecated

The Coveo Legacy connector for Microsoft SharePoint allows you to bring the information stored on one or multiple SharePoint farms into the unified index so that end-users can easily access this content. The Legacy connector allows Coveo Enterprise Search (CES) to crawl and index a complete SharePoint farm or specific farm sections, such as Web Applications, site collections, websites, lists, or document libraries.

Note: A second generation SharePoint connector is now available and strongly recommended to use over the legacy version (see Microsoft SharePoint Connector) .

CES 7.0.7433+ (February 2015) A tool to convert your SharePoint Legacy sources to SharePoint sources is available. The SharePoint Converter Tool, which is compatible with CES 7.0.6767+ (June 2014 monthly release), is pretty useful when you want to take full advantage of the improved SharePoint connector without having to recreate all your SharePoint Legacy sources. Contact Coveo Support to get the SharePoint Converter Tool.
