Our latest version of I2E includes improvements that make it easier to integrate the tool into your organization and process your internal documents, as well as the usual usability enhancements and under-the-hood modifications.
I2E 5.3.1 supports Single Sign-On (SSO) by connecting with Federated Authenticated Systems such as ADFS and Shibboleth. This means that you can be authenticated in one system and then seamlessly log into the I2E client without prompting for your credentials. If you are not already logged in via another system, I2E will initiate the login process via a redirect to a special web page.
We’ve improved the hit highlighting in our Excel results format (figure 1): terms from your search use the same colors for each column in your results and the colors are consistent across the I2E Query Editor, HTML results and highlighted cache documents.
A good example of recent continual improvement in I2E is the Class Chooser. In recent releases, we have increased search speed, added as-you-type class suggestions and, in I2E 5.3.1, we’ve added additional information for each class match to show which Ontology the term is from (figure 2). This helps to quickly review your results to get to your correct match(es), particularly when you’re using a term that could occur in different ontologies.
I2E 5.3.1 also sees the introduction of a beta-version of our I2E Output Connector for Apache ManifoldCF. ManifoldCF is “an open source framework for connecting source content repositories like Microsoft SharePoint and OpenText Documentum, to target repositories or indexes”. This means that I2E can be used to index documents stored in Documentum, allowing you to text-mine your files to generate structured results (and link back to them in Documentum) without needing to manually export the documents from Documentum.
