Google Search Appliance Connector for PTC Windchill
Google Search Appliance, GSA connector, PTC Windchill connector,
Content in the enterprise is typically stored across multiple repositories such as databases, file shares, and one or more document management systems. Without a unified system to search across all this information, some knowledge will remain hidden and the high-value assets created by workers cannot be used to support design, manufacturing, or research objectives. Implementing a Google Search Appliance (GSA) within an organization can provide users with fast access to highly relevant content that drives business processes and helps maximize Windchill investments.
Version 2.0 of the connector was released in January 2015 and includes several new features. It includes enhanced support for searching Windchill ProjectLink and PartsLink, and also allows for early binding authorization for role-based assignment of both users and groups to individual projects and libraries.

Enterprise Search for Windchill Documents and Data and Content from other Business Systems: The Google Search Appliance is an on premise search solution developed by Google to provide a single search experience across all your enterprise data. Whether you’re searching an intranet, public-facing website, ECM, or PLM system, the GSA provides the fast, relevant search results users expect. The GSA builds on the accuracy of google.com and adds business-specific features like synonyms, document previews, and security support.
Connector Architecture: Fishbowl's GSA Connector for Windchill enables the GSA to index content stored in PTC's Windchill PLM system and provides the security mechanisms necessary to enforce the Windchill security model. Users are provided with a single interface to search across CAD documents, WTParts, Promotion Requests, and Change objects - while adhering to the user and group-specific security parameters your organization has in place.
