I would like to thank all the members in the ManifoldCF community and for this release with a special thank to Kishore Kumar for his huge contribution on the new user interface. Great job!

Microsoft SharePoint 2016

We have invested a lot of time and effort for aligning each new SharePoint release with ManifoldCF and, without receiving external support, we have achieved with success also this new release.

I would like to remind that ManifoldCF fully supports SharePoint in this ways:

  • You can read contents from your SharePoint repositories for managing your search indexes using the SharePoint or the CMIS repository connector
  • You can read authorities for generating access tokens and permissions in your search server in two different ways: using the native or using the SharePoint Active Directory authority connector

For more details about the SharePoint connectors please see the ManifoldCF documentation.
