Subject Re: MCF not indexing documents due to mime-type
Date Wed, 20 Dec 2017 12:53:10 GMT
Hi Phil,

For some output connectors, they *only* accept text documents.  That's why
you need to run your documents through Tika first.  So your original setup
was right.

If you are still using ElasticSearch, you can make it accept non-text
documents only by specifying the mapper attachment in the output connection
