Indexing link to document content type in FS4SP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can FAST index the file that is referenced by a “Link to Document” content type? If so does it work the same way as it index the other content?

  • Hi Rush,

    I tested this just now with both OOB search and FAST, and the link is not followed. Only the link name was indexed. According to this article it should however work.

    I created a linked document pointing to a docx file on, but it was not pulled down, and no warning or error in the logs.

  • Hi,

    My guess is that this only works with SharePoint search and not FAST Search. It probably wouldn't be accepted as a bug, since there is no official documentation stating this is supported. I wish it was, though...
