Lucidworks is pleased to announce the release of Fusion 2.2. This is a preview release of new features and enhancements we have been working on.

New Connectors

We have 3 new data source connectors.


The Alfresco connector adheres to the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) standard and has been tested with the Alfresco Community 5.0.d edition


The ServiceNow connector allows for the crawl/recrawl of SN records of type Problem, Incident and kb_knowledge.


The ZenDesk connector retrieves tickets, metrics, comments and attachments from the popular customer support system. It retrieves all tickets with all fields (e.g., customer, assignee, priority, status) as well as access restrictions for users and groups. We have also made numerous under the hood enhancements addressing connector indexing performance, speed and stability.
