IBM® Connections enables crawling of content through its seedlist SPIs. These interfaces provide a mechanism for iterating over all indexable text content and for iterating over only recently updated content.



IBM® Connections enables crawling of content through its seedlist SPIs. These interfaces provide a mechanism for iterating over all indexable text content and for iterating over only recently updated content.

About this task

When creating the index, you must retrieve data from each IBM Connections application separately.


Crawling data for the first time
The first time that you crawl the IBM Connections data, you must crawl all content, so it takes longer to perform this operation than it takes to perform subsequent crawls.

Subsequently crawling data
After crawling the data for the first time, perform a crawl on a regular basis to stay up-to-date with the changes being made by the people using IBM Connections.

Seedlist response
Understand what is returned in the seedlist response.
