Hi Janvi,

Follow the document (section Configuring a Crawler Profile)

https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/kmc/how to set up a web repository and crawling it for indexing

Hope this helps.

thanks,

Praveen

Hi Praveen,

I have this document. But I don't see an option where I can select the crawler type in Content Management --> Global Services --> Crawler Parameters

Hi Janvi,

There is no specific crawler for web. There is only one standard crawler which is used for indexing purposes. You can create your own crawler which will be based on the standard crawler where you can change the parameter values if you dont want to change the standard one.

Hi Prakash,

Thanx. Are there any specific parameters for a simple web repository?

Hi Janvi,

No there are no specific parameters for a simple web repository.

What i meant was you can change the existing parameter values in the crawler you create.

Hi Janvi,

the how to doc is made on EP6SP2, where crawler profile is present in KM config. But as prakash said there is no specific crawler for web in SP12. You can create your own crawler and you can specify parameters like depths etc.

For other information couple of SAP notes might be useful 635009 & 636172.

Thanks,

Praveen
