    Hey JulienS did you manage to get this set up and working?
    @... we were told this wasn't possible, so am getting conflicting information...

    Hello Matt Farrington-Smith, yes we managed to setup the crawler with Confluence. Indexing of the article works, we are just finalizing the upgrade of the theme to include the correct placeholders to return the results of federated search.

    hello, the content of the crawler, after a search, is presented embedded or it is just a link that pops-out a window or tab to the external content? 

    I ask this because I am wondering if it make sense to host HTML content in a s3 bucket, without custom domain. if the crawler embeds the content, it doesn't matter not having a custom domain. different to the case if it pops-it out.

    I suspect not using the custom domain may create problems like the domain-verification rule..

    I hope my question makes sense!

    Hi Cesar, and welcome to the community! 
     
    When users perform a search, relevant external content discovered by the crawler is ranked and presented on the search results page, where users can filter the results and click the links to view the external content link in another browser tab.

    Hello, Is the crawled external visibility set to Everyone? Is there a way to control the visibility settings of the crawled external content?
    We'd like to limit the crawled external content to agents and admins for one of our use cases but based on what's available in the settings, I assume that it's not possible.

    I'm having difficulties getting external content to show up for everyone in search results. I have enabled it and it is verified that the crawler is working. Am I missing something?

    When configuring the crawler, if you designate a site while including a subdomain, will the crawler cover the entire domain or just the subdomain?

    Is the crawler's verification tag persistent across crawlers or is a new one generated for each crawler? For instance, if I start configuring a crawler, copy the tag, but don't save the crawler because I don't have the sitemap URL, will that tag be the same when I go back to finish creating the crawler?
