This page provides a complete library of Portford's ContentConnectors. Your system will be licensed to run a number of connectors and lifecycles. However, some connectors are provided as open which do not require a station license and do not count against your entitlement.


Deprecated Connectors

In v4.8 we have made the process a little simpler in regards to connectors. We now have a Document Processing connector that replaces the OCR Connector, Separator Connector and the Render Connector.


System Connectors

Thumbnail Generator

This connector creates thumbnail of image based content (TIFF, JPG, GIF, PNG, and BMP) that is displayed in the search results for managed content. Parameters allow the thumbnail width and height to be specified.

Connector Logs Cleaner

This connector purges the different logs within DocuNECT after a specified time frame.

Distributed Batch Cleaner

The lifecycle has an option to delete batches on successful distribution to a business application, however, you can also archive the batches for future reference and then use this connector to purge them after a specified amount of time.

Storage Cleaner

When a file is deleted DocuNECT does not actually delete the content to allow it to be potentially recovered. This connector will purge the content that has been marked for deletion to free up the disk space.

Storage Monitor

This monitors the free space on a specified storage location and sends email notifications to an assigned user if the free space falls below an designated amount.

User Synch

Users and groups (with membership) can be import from Microsoft Active Directory via LDAP. In addition this information can be imported from a text file to generically support other user and group methodologies.
