Search Appliance


Thunderstone Search Appliance Manual

Primer Type

"Primer URLs" are URLs that are fetched before actually starting a walk. They are not stored in the search database, but instead are used to "prime" the Search Appliance with any necessary credentials (e.g. login cookies) for accessing the rest of the site. By default, the Base URL is used, in case any session/ASP cookies are needed.

The Primer Type setting specifies which (if any) URLs are used to prime the profile:

For directly-supported authentication schemes - HTTP Basic, NTLM, Negotiate, CAS, or file authentication - the Login Info setting should be used instead.

For file shares (file:// URLs), mounts are automatically checked (and re-mounted if necessary) as a primer action. Please see the Network Shares section (3.3) for details on walking file servers.
