Language detector applies appropriate model according to text lengthPermanent link for this heading

Now the language detector provides good results even for very small texts. For small texts, the language detector uses specially trained models in which the text length can be configured.

See the documentation.

GSA replacement preconfiguration provided by pluginPermanent link for this heading

Settings needed for configuring a Mindbreeze InSpire appliance as a GSA replacement can be done automatically by installing GSA-Replacement-Config.tar.gz as a plugin.

GSA full feed supportPermanent link for this heading

The GSA feed adapter supports full content feeds. When full content feeds are indexed, the feed “datasource” attribute value has to be set up as a category instance in a Mindbreeze index. The GSA full content feeds contain all documents from a data source. Documents which were previously indexed and are no longer contained in the feed will be deleted.  

You can find more details in the manual Google Search Appliance Feed Indexing with Mindbreeze InSpire.

Confluence indexing without macro executionPermanent link for this heading

The Mindbreeze Atlassian Confluence Connector can index Confluence pages without executing the macros embedded in them. If the option Use REST API for Page Content is activated, only the static textual content of the Confluence pages are indexed using REST API calls. This option is useful if the large amount of macro execution during Confluence indexing causes performance issues.

You can find more details in the manual Atlassian Confluence Connector.

Microsoft IIS/SharePoint authentication API proxy Permanent link for this heading

This feature enables transparent authentication using Microsoft IIS or Microsoft SharePoint for the Mindbreeze search.

Details can be found in Microsoft IIS_SharePoint Authentication API Proxy für Client Service (OAuth2).
