Provide an agent to watch a filesystem for document changes
I'm currently using dropbox for this, and it would be nice to bypass this step, and go directly to search
Thank you for your feedback. While it is unlikely we’ll address this suggestion in the near future, we’ll reassess based on the number of votes it receives.
In the meantime – we do support indexer through Azure Files which would allow you to do what you’re looking for. Another alternative would be to use Logic Apps (or Flow), and create triggers for your file system, pushing the data into a blob or Posting it directly to the search index.
