Getting the most out of your search tool is difficult if it can’t index all your sources like content management solutions that are either too complicated or too obscure to be included in a partner’s standard product roadmap. That’s why we created Handshake Search Connector Framework, the latest product in our portfolio.

An Extensible Search Connector

Handshake is a lightweight and extensible search connector utility that changes the way content is crawled, processed and indexed. More specifically, Handshake:

  • Generates connector instances that consist of pipelines controlled through a central user interface
  • Doesn’t require re-deploying a Java application for major or minor tweaks
  • Can easily add additional transformations to a pipeline
  • Can swap out search destinations in minutes
  • Can apply different rules to multiple connector instances with relative ease
  • Allows higher precision and reuse of source interfaces
  • Significantly reduces the amount of custom code needed to transform content
  • Reduces time to deploy and empowers administrators to control the flow of data to search solutions
  • Supports 15 typically uncrawlable source systems and 3 search engines – Google, Coveo and Elastic
