Custom data sources
Custom data sources are a generic data source type that allow the indexing of content from arbitrary sources such as the gathering of content via API, or programmatically via Java libraries or an SDK. The gathering logic for a custom data source uses a plugin or a custom gather script that must be supplied before the data source is usable.
To create a new custom data source follow the data source creation guide selecting custom as the data source type.
A custom data source uses a plugin gatherer which implements the logic required to connect to and gather content from the custom repository.
Available custom gatherer plugins:
Enable the plugin containing the custom gatherer on the custom data source
Follow any additional configuration steps as outlined in the plugin’s readme file.
If a custom data source imports multiple plugins that implement custom gathering then you will need to specify which gatherer to use by setting the data source configuration option,
