Subject Re: Problems while indexing Jira/ and an other problem
Date Wed, 20 Oct 2010 11:11:23 GMT
I think you should open a JIRA ticket for the Windows Share connector.
 It sounds like the javascript for handling the insert link might be
broken in the UI.

As for the web session login, the MCF crawler of course handles
cookies - that is a major piece of session authentication.  The
question is whether it is recording the cookie set that happens as a
result of the login sequence.  What you want to be sure of is that all
the parts of the login, including the final redirection back to the
content page, are considered part of the login sequence.  You also
want to be sure that you don't use as your seed URL the login page
itself, because then there is no place to resume when the login is
done.  Instead you want a seed which is the root or home page.  If
login is mandatory, then presumably there would be a redirection that
takes you to the login page.  That redirection should *also* be part
of the login sequence.
In short, the login sequence needs to cover every fetch that isn't
actual indexable content.  The cookies that are set at the end of that
sequence are what will be retained for all subsequent fetches from the
protected area of the site that you specify with your url regular

Hope this helps.
