Automated Metadata Generation

To further enhance findability, metadata can be automatically generated based on document content via rules, taxonomies, barcodes, PDF forms, XMP and integration with NLP services.

Product Preview

The preview version of Searchlight Tagger was shown at our Booth at the European SharePoint Conference to a great reception. You can download the preview release here.


Searchlight supports the use of managed metadata and taxonomies for both identifying taxonomy values that should be used to tag the document and is also able to add new taxonomy values if required.

Entity Extraction

By integrating with NLP (Natural Language Processing) services, Searchlight is able to assign values for Entities such as Location, Person, Company and more.

Barcode Values

Over 20 types of barcode can be recognized and the values assigned to Library metadata columns.

PDF Forms

Data from PDF forms can be extracted and each field value assigned to a separate metadata column.


Text rules can use Regular Expressions and our Advance Text Filtering tool to pick up special values like social security numbers, dates, etc. The values that qualify are added as values of the metadata column.


You can speacify areas on a PDF file where you want Searchlight to search for Text or Barcodes values. The values that qualify are added as values of the metadata column.

PDF Metadata

Both standard and custom PDF metadata can be extracted and assigned to SharePoint columns. This can also include XMP metadata.
