What connectors are available with FAST RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    From online documentation I couldn't find a list of connectors that ship with FAST Search Server


    SharePoint Sites

    Windows File Shares

    Exchange Public Folders

    Lotus Notes

    Web Sites

    Structured content in databases.


    If I would want to display results in SharePoint from other repositories like,



    Documentum etc.,


    Are there any connectors available for those repositories to crawl that content and make those results appear in FAST Search web parts?

  • You would have to purchase a third party connector (or develop your own).

    BA-Insight has connectors for both Alfresco and Documentum. Check out for a complete list of their offering.

    The BA connectors work equally well with the built-in search as with FAST, as the crawling in FS4SP is done via SharePoint. There are some FAST specific connectors, but I would recommend using one which runs via the SharePoint crawler framework. This ensures better compatibility with future versions of SharePoint and FAST.
