Cloud Convert

The CloudConvert plugin provides the capability to index and search files uploaded into Brightspot. For example, if you upload a Word or PowerPoint file, the plugin extracts and indexes the text, making the files searchable. File-extracted content is queried like any other content in Brightspot — from the search panel. The CloudConvert plugin also generates a thumbnail image of the first page of an uploaded file. The thumbnails appear in the search panel with the retrieved content.

The CloudConvert plugin works in conjunction with Digital Asset Management, which provides document, spreadsheet, and presentation content types. These content types support file uploads.

The plugin uses the CloudConvert API to convert document, spreadsheet, and presentation formats to text. The plugin supports these file formats:

Document html, doc, docx, odt, pdf, rtf
Presentation ppt, pptx
Spreadsheet xls, xlsx, csv

Text extraction and thumbnail generation run as a background task.
