When integrating SharePoint with Whatfix, based on the content type you select, the following details need to be generated from the SharePoint application.

Content Type Details required
Article List Name
Document List Name, Library Name, Folder Absolute Path (optional)
Site Page List Name

Expand the sections below for steps to find the above information on your SharePoint application.

List name for Articles, Documents and Site Pages

  1. Log in to your SharePoint application.

  2. In the left pane, click Site contents.
    Sharepoint_site_contents

  3. Under the Name column, find the list name of the content that you want to crawl. For example, if you want to crawl a document type named docs, then use the List name highlighted in the following image.

The same procedure can be followed to find the List name of articles and site pages as well,

  2. In the left pane, click Site contents.

The Library name for the above example URL is Shared Documents.

  • To crawl multiple folders, you can specify the Absolute Paths of the folders separated by commas (,).
  • You can crawl up to 10 folders in a single integration.
  • No content is crawled if you specify the incorrect path order or misspell folder names.
  • In case you have both right and incorrect path names, then the content for the right folder path is crawled.
