NetDocuments Connector 

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 indexes content stored in NetDocs so that users can search and retrieve NetDocuments content directly from within their portal.  The connector applies document security in NetDocs to SharePoint Search, Azure Search or Elasticsearch automatically, so user information remains secure.  Metadata stored in NetDocuments can be mapped to equivalent terms 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:

  • 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, or any other portal.
  • 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.  The portal 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

As new versions of Azure Search, Elasticsearch, and SharePoint Search are released, new features and functionality are introduced, and the same is true of new releases of NetDocuments. BA Insight takes on the burden of keeping the connector up to date for both NetDocuments and the respective search engines. The upgrades are easy to do and can be done by your IT organization. It is simply a matter of accessing the BA Insight customer portal, downloading the latest release, and installing and configuring it. If desired, our professional services team can handle the upgrades.
