NetDocuments Connector for SharePoint

NetDocs has been the leader in cloud-based document management since 1999, helping firms to reduce costs and increase productivity with enterprise search, built-in disaster recovery, client, matter, and project-centric workspaces, and any time access on a modern platform that scales to both small and large firms alike.

Our NetDocuments Connector for SharePoint indexes content stored in NetDocs so that users can search and retrieve NetDocuments content directly from within SharePoint.  The connector applies document security in NetDocs to SharePoint search automatically, so user information remains secure.  Metadata stored in NetDocuments can be mapped to equivalent terms in SharePoint so that users have a seamless search experience.

NetDocuments Connectors for SharePoint

The connector supports both full and incremental crawls:

  • Full crawls request and index all desired content from NetDocuments
  • Incremental crawls request and index only content which has changed since the last crawl

Our NetDocs Connector for SharePoint:

  • 1
    Allows searching for any kind of documents stored in NetDocuments.
  • 2
    Operates with minimal impact on NetDocuments.  Once content is crawled, all search activity takes place in SharePoint.
  • 3
    Provides high performance indexing so large amounts of content can be made available to users.
  • 4
    Leverages NetDocuments security to determine which documents users can access.
  • 5
    All content remains safely in NetDocuments.  SharePoint has only a searchable representation of documents – pointers – and users are directed back to NetDocuments to launch documents found in their search result.


Future-proof your investment for new SharePoint versions and O365

With each successive version of SharePoint, Microsoft extends its core capabilities, and the same is true of new releases of the NetDocs.  BA Insight does the hard work of keeping the connector up to date for both NetDocuments and SharePoint. In addition, the NetDocuments Connector for SharePoint also works with O365 through Cloud SSA. In fact, we support current versions of SharePoint including 2010, 2013, 2016, and Office365.

The upgrades can be done by your IT organization. It is a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release and installing and configuring it.  Or, if desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
