OneDrive for Business Connector

This guide describes how to install and use the IBM® Watson™ Explorer Engine OneDrive for Business connector, which is available for Watson Explorer Engine. The OneDrive for Business connector enables Watson Explorer Engine applications to crawl OneDrive for Business Sites from SharePoint Personal sites, and index the information that they contain.

The OneDrive for Business connector allows you to crawl Microsoft OneDrive for Business objects, such as documents, user profiles, site collections, blogs, list items, membership lists, directory pages, and more. In each case, the object is indexed with its associated metadata and its attachments (for list items and documents).

Note: The OneDrive for Business connector respects the noindex attribute on all OneDrive for Business objects, regardless of their specific type (blogs, documents, user profiles, and more). A single document is returned for each result.

This document is intended for use by systems administrators tasked with installing and configuring the OneDrive for Business connector and crawling OneDrive for Business repositories. Other key audience members include IT management and personnel generally responsible for the maintenance of OneDrive for Business, Watson Explorer Engine, and Watson Explorer Application Builder applications.

A working knowledge of Watson Explorer Engine and a basic understanding of Watson Explorer Engine administration and configuration is required to follow along in this guide. A similar background in SharePoint administration is assumed.

The last section of this guide is a known issues section.
