How to enable the search from crawler?

From CSP-79457:

"Hi!

I use a software called TheBrain (http://www.thebrain.com/), I can attach web pages in this software and it indexes its content (files, webpages, etc.). But it can't index my wiki pages (event if it has access to the page). How can I change that, please?"

Later on we found out that it works on wiki pages visible for anonymous users, but not for content that requires user credentials. According to http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Setup+External+Search+Tool+To+Index+Confluence , there needs to be a confluence user specifically for TheBrain to use. But we can't find a way to associate a user to the TheBrain software. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Hi,

Does adding the following parameters to the URLs that you want to attach work:

?os_AuthType=basic&os_username=<user>&os_password=<password>

where <user> and <password> are the details of the Confluence user you have created for "TheBrain".

Thank for your answer, Andrew!

It works, thanks a lot !

Hi Richard,

Glad it worked. Could you give Alyson a nudge via your CSP-79457 support ticket to mark my answer as correct please?

Thanks,

Andrew.
