Question by Lautaro Bonetto, Jan 20, 2015 8:56 AM

How do I can trigger a new crawling process using a post-conversion script?


On my current project we have CES 7.0 and Sitecore 7.5. We are using Coveo to index Sitecore items and we have a field with an URL on those items. This URL points to a MS Word file on another web site. We want to trigger a new crawling process to index those MS docs after Coveo finish the indexing of each Sitecore items. Is it possible? Could someone send me an example?

I would use a coveoPostItemProcessingPipeline, as described here :

to fetch the item and output two items in the 'OutputItems' property. You can create a new CoveoIndexableItem and assign the BinaryData of the MSWord document, as well as the uri. Make sure to set a uniqueId property as well so it gets indexed.

Lautaro, You could simply use the web crawler in this case. You only need a page that display all the word link. That page can either be on SC or you other web site.
