The list of connectors can be found here: http://www.coveo.com/go?dest=adminhelp70&lcid=9&context=114

I personally do not see any fitting your needs, which mean that you would probably have to build one. With the On-Premises edition, you can use the Connector Framework : https://developers.coveo.com/x/mwAO

In the cloud, you can use the PUSH API : https://developers.coveo.com/x/fIQAAg

Both of these are fully custom solutions but the push API is simpler and closer to what you can get with other modern search indexes.

Also be aware that these two solution do require a paid license, so contact your vendor if needed.

Thanks @Simon for your response.

Yes you are right. I could also see there is no Out of the box connector is available in coveo. So, I was trying to build the custom connector to achieve the same. I would like to know how to get the content pro-grammatically using any API or some other way from clearcase, SVN or CVS content source. Could you please suggest any idea to implement the custom connector for the same and If possible share some sample code also.
