Content Metadata Harvesting

The Metadata Harvester is a tool that collects metadata from the content of ALL assets in the Workspace. Here are the key starting points: 

  • This metadata harvesting process must run periodically as the library changes to update the metadata. 
  • The Harvester tool can't run simultaneously on multiple Connecter instances in the Workspace. 
  • Harvesting metadata from large libraries could be slow and require a lot of resources (CPU, memory, etc.). We highly recommend that the first run of the Metadata Harvester is done during the weekend because it can take some time to finish. After that you can schedule the metadata harvesting to run during the night after office hours.
  • The user can't add or exclude assets from the metadata harvesting process – this limitation safeguards the system from many issues partially-stored metadata can cause.
