Hi Phil,

You probably want to point your SharePoint repository connection to the proper server and site, and not rely on redirections.  It's also possible that you are missing the site entirely and the redirection you are seeing is taking you to some error page somewhere.

I will be raising the question of redirections with the HttpComponents/HttpClient team, since I see no obvious problems with the SharePoint connector code.  However, if your connection is properly set up, redirections should be unneeded.

I would read the documentation on the Wiki page for debugging SharePoint connections at the bottom of this page: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CONNECTORS/Debugging+Connections

Do you mean in the job status in the Manifold CF interface? 

The job status also shows the same:
Error: Unexpected http error code 302 accessing SharePoint at <url>: (302)HTTP/1.0 302 Found

I agree, I wouldn’t of thought that the crawler would follow any links or redirections.

What sort of configurations could be incorrectly configured, that I could look at revising?

When you view the repository connection in the UI, do you get a 302 error also?

I have looked at the code; Httpclient is supposedly configured to honor redirections.  Obviously it is not doing that, so I'll have to dig deeper into why that is.  On the other hand, I would not expect you to be getting any redirections, unless you have configured your connection incorrectly.

Hi Phil,

A HTTP 302 response is simply a redirection.  It should not, by itself, cause a job to abort.  I would expect that to go by in wire/http logging, but you should not see it anywhere else.  So it is not clear to me what you are really seeing here.

Can you include an example stack trace from the manifoldcf log?

Hi -

When crawling a Sharepoint repository, I’m receiving a HTTP 302 error which is causing the manifold job to abort. How do I prevent the crawler from aborting the job?

I’m using v2.3 of Manifold with a postgres database.
