Modifying Hidden Gmail for Work 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 Gmail for Work 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 changing values of hidden parameters when you encounter issues.

The following list describes the advanced hidden parameters available with Gmail for Work sources. The parameter type (integer, string, etc.) appears between parentheses following the parameter name.

HttpTimeoutInMs (Integer)

The timeout value (in milliseconds) allowed for a HTTP request to complete. The default value is 100000 milliseconds.

NumberOfRefreshThreads (Integer)

The number of refresh threads used by the crawler for this source. The default value is 1.

NumberOfRetries (Integer)

The number of retries allowed when a recoverable call to Google API fails. The default value is 3.

UsersToCrawl (String)

The email address of the user (or a semicolon separated list of users email) you want to index the Gmail mailbox content. By default, the mailbox of every user under the Google Apps for Work domain is indexed.

IncludeSpamTrashMessage (Boolean)

Whether to include messages from the Spam and Trash folders in the results. The default value is true.
