Matrix collection

Introduction

A matrix collection gathers data from a Squiz Matrix CMS system. Gathering is performed using a standard web crawler, however additional metadata is automatically gathered from Squiz Matrix and an alternate result presentation designed for use within Squiz Matrix is applied.

The matrix collection is defined by the following properties:

  • The API URL for the Squiz Matrix system;
  • The username with which Funnelback can access the Squiz Matrix installation;
  • The password with which Funnelback can access the Squiz Matrix installation.

Other configuration settings for matrix collections match those for web collections (since the same web crawler is used).

Result presentation

Matrix collections are designed to be presented only through the Squiz Matrix "Funnelback REST Search Page" asset, which is able to provide additional security information with the normal search request to allow document level security checks to be performed. See the Funnelback REST Search Page documentation for more information.
