The Data Sources Overview page shows all configured data sources and allows you to configure new data sources of several types. Information for each data source includes the type, how many documents are in the index from that source, the current status and details of the most recent crawl (time and duration). The Detail button will show how each data source is configured, while the Edit Settings button will open a screen to change the configuration. Start or Stop Crawl will initiate a crawl or end one that's already running. Delete will remove the data source and any indexed documents.
Several statuses may be displayed:
- Finished: the crawl was allowed to run to completion and is now done.
- Running: the crawl is in process.
- Stopped: the crawl was aborted before finishing.
