Attachments Plugin: Who uses it?


(Shay Banon) #1

Hi,

A quick poll: Who uses the attachments plugin and what types do you use

it for (pdf, html, ...)? Which types would you rank as the most important
for you?

Not using it currently, but I plan to write a Transfer service for Alfresco
which will push documents into ES. We will be indexing all of the MS office
formats (doc, xls and ppt) and PDF. Of these, the most important for us to
be searchable are the PDF files.

Aside question, can I upload large binary files using the REST api if I am
using the attachments plugin? Is that a standard HTTP Post action?

You can upload large files, but indexing is not streamed, meaning it will be
buffered in memory within elasticsearch before it gets indexed.
