Create Plug-in Options

Plug-in Options is the area in Management Studio's Configuration Options section, where you enable Additional Plug-in Modules you want to use and enter the path where these options are installed.

Licence required: Search Assistants, Index Assistants and Document Routing each require a licence. If required, contact support@mitratech.com about purchasing a licence.

Note: As a User, ensure you have permission to create and manage Index Assistant and Search Assistant options. See “Permissions," for more information.

To configure additional Plug-ins, you must first enter your Windows® log-in information and then configure the Plug-in Options you want to use.

This information is used to execute the scripts (configured in Search Assistant Configuration, in the Search Template Editor) on the Server to perform the Search Assistant search.

Note: When setting an Impersonation User, Password or Domain, Management Studio Client must be running on the same machine as the DataStore®DSX Server.

  1. In the tree view, expand Configuration Options and select Plug-in Options.
  2. To run Plug-ins, you must provide your Windows® user name and password.
    • Impersonation User – the user name you use to log in to your Windows® session.
    • Impersonation Password – the password you use to log in to your Windows® session.
    • Impersonation Domain (optional) – the Domain you use; for example, SloughOffice.
