Data Connectors for the Google Search Appliance


  • Search Technologies specializes in the creation, implementation, and support of data connectors for the GSA
  • These enable content to be indexed from third-party repositories and other data sources
  • We provide a growing range of data connectors, and we build new connectors to order

With over 200 GSA customers, Search Technologies has unparalleled experience with the Google Search Appliance.

Data connectors are an important part of the overall architecture of search systems. Where document-level security is involved, achieving efficient data connectivity can be challenging.

Our GSA data connectors are supported by expert services, so regardless of the complexity, all of your important data sources can be indexed into the GSA.

At the same time, our approach to data connectors ensures that all document-level security restrictions are fully reflected in search results. If a user cannot see a document in the native repository, then it will never appear in a hit list. 

We are also able to handle nested permission groups, and multiple authentication servers.

Connector performance can be an important aspect in some circumstances. A connector must be able to acquire content quickly, to satisfy the needs of the search application, but at the same time, it must remain friendly toward the target repository. 

Using our extensive experience, we'll find the optimum approach to ensure that data connectors are implemented in a secure and reliable way.

Currently available data connectors for the GSA include:

  • SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013
  • EMC Documentum and eRoom
  • Lotus Notes
  • Jive
  • Atlassian Confluence
  • Rightnow CX
  • IBM Connections
  • Amazon S3 buckets
  • Socialcast
  • TeamForge
  • SalesForce
  • Complete list of connectors

Connectors to repositories that are not currently supported, can be built to order.
