Sharepoint

Postby JohnDoe » Mon Apr 10, 2017 10:10 am

I like to be able to find *any* documents available to me and have been able to either index local drives, remote shares, create .efu files etc and I love the tool. However, files stored on Sharepoint seems not easy indexable.

I have gotten around it with extracting data from relevant sharepoint database, and formatting this to .efu.
Opening path in search window then gets me to relevant Sharepoint document library, and opening the file from the search window
automatically downloads the document, both methods are great and I now have a method to find duplicate files etc.

However, I would like to be able to do this in a more structured API way which would restrict to only documents which I actually have access to,
would negate the need to have database access and preferably through the tool itself.

Any thoughs on this?

What version of Sharepoint?

I'm assuming sharepoint uses some sort of virtual namespace in Windows Explorer.

Indexing virtual namespaces is on my TODO list.
