(Re)crawl a Content Source

SearchUnify crawls your content source(s) at intervals defined in the Set Up Crawl Frequency stage. However, if the selected frequency happens to be Never, make it a habit to run the crawler (1) right after setting up a content source and (2) each time the data in content sources changes. Frequent recrawls allow search users to access up-to-date documents.


To trigger a crawl or a recrawl, go to Content Sources and click . If you find that the button is disabled, then edit your content source to change auto-crawl frequency. When auto-crawl frequency is set to one hour, then Manual recrawls are disabled.

Crawling is in progress if turns on clicking. You can crawl more than one content sources simultaneously. You can also use other SearchUnify features while a crawl is in progress. If you have set up Turn on Content Source Indexing Notifications you will receive an email after the completion of a crawling job.

In case you spot , it means that the previous attempt at crawling has failed. You can find more information about the reasons for failure in View Crawl Logs.
