14.SharePoint archive plugin

This plugin was created for scanning SharePoint sites and processing & archiving certain items and its contents into a specific storage.

After you have successfully created a new job to SharePoint archive plugin (for more information how to create a new job please refer to section Creating new jobs in contentACCESS) can start to configure it. Navigate to the Custom plugins ⇒ General ⇒ Jobs, choose the job from the list. Click on ellipses (…) and choose Configure option from the context menu. The Job configuration page will open, where the user will be required to set the following sections:

✓ Database connection:
For database settings select an already configured connection from the dropdown list, where the metadata will be stored. (For further information how to set database connections please refer to section “How to create/configure databases — All databases”).

✓ SharePoint settings:
In this section the user will be required to configure the SharePoint site(s) which will be processed by the job. Click on + new option and fill required fields in the SharePoint site dialog box, then click OK:


✓ Scheduling settings:
In this step the user should configure the automatic running times of the SharePoint archive job. It is possible either to select a scheduler from the list (contains already created schedulers) or to create a new scheduler via create new option. (For more information about how to set schedulers refer to the section Schedules above.)


✓ Item filtering:
This configuration enables for you to filter among your items by 3 types of criteria: by age, size or file type. It is also enabled to use more filters simultaneously. To activate any of these filters, check the corresponding checkbox first, then click on the button to open the filter dialog:

  • Age filter: If you select an option from the “Select filtration type” list, and check the Use Dates checkbox, and specify a date, then the age filter will filter out all items, of which modification date is younger/older than this specific date. It is also possible to specify certain time interval with the Use Dates function. In this case the items falling under this modification date interval will be filtered out/processed. This age filtering type should be used if you would like to process documents with a specific modification date.

    Examples of using dates:

    Documentation317 Documentation318


    Examples of filtering using days/months/years:
    If the Use dates checkbox is not selected, then the date selection option becomes inactive. In this case it is allowed to filter between items where the Modification date is younger than/Modification date is older than a certain number of days/month/years. Enter the number into the checkbox next to the Days/Months/Years radio button (screenshot A). It is also allowed to filter items which belong to a certain period of time, e.g. between items from months 1 to 3 (screenshot B). This age filtering type should be used if you would like to process items, which are older/younger than a certain number of days/months/years (e.g. items older than 1 year). If the Age filter has been set click OK.

    Documentation320 Documentation321

    Screenshot A: Emails younger than 90 days will be processed.                                                             Screenshot B: Emails in age 1-3 months will be processed.

  • Size filter: This filter can be very useful because it enables to find the biggest files for further processing. For filtering files according to this criteria activate Size filter button by checking the checkbox next to it, then click on the active button.
    In the Size filter dialog choose from the filtering types (Bigger than, Smaller than, or Between values), enter the size (in kilobytes) and click OK.

    Screenshot C: emails bigger than 64 kB will be processed.

    Important!!!: When the user changes the file content of an already archived item, e.g. deletes a picture from the file and saves it to the original location, (and thus the file size will be reduced e.g. from 110 to 85 kB) and file size filter is set on >100 kB, then SharePoint archive job will not archive the newly created item by the next processing. The newly created item will be saved in the original location. From this reason, it is recommended to always check the size filter settings first, if a file has not been archived by the archiving process.

  • File type filter: This filter was improved to select certain file types to be processed, and exclude not selected file types from processing. For filtering between documents according to this criteria activate File Type filter button by checking the checkbox next to it, then click on the active button.

    In the File Type filter dialog the user may select certain file types to process (option Process ONLY selected file types), or he may specify, which file types should be excluded from the processing (DO NOT process selected file types). If nothing is selected/deselected from the file types then every file type will be processed automatically.

    Screenshot D: DOC, DOCX, JPG, PDF, XLS and XLSX files will be processed.

    After all settings have been done a summary of filter settings will be displayed under section Item filtering.

✓ Storage settings:
For storage settings choose an already configured storage from the dropdown list. The processed binaries will be stored here. (For more information how to set storages check section Storages above.)


✓ Resource settings:
Under resource settings you can define the number of items that will be simultaneously crawled. It is not advisable to set here a value higher than the duplex number of cores of the processor as this might extremely slow down the whole processing.


At the end never forget to save your job configurations: click on Save in the left upper corner of UI.
