How to configure which Heritrix report has to be uploaded in the metadata ARC file

Three settings properties control which heritrix reports are added to the metadata ARC file:

  • settingsharvesterharvestingmetadataheritrixFilePattern is a java pattern that allows you select which files in the crawl dir (not recursively) to include in the metadata ARC.
  • settingsharvesterharvestingmetadatareportFilePattern is also a java pattern that controls which subset of the files selected by heritrixFilePattern are to be considered as report files All the other files will be considered as setup files.
  • settingsharvesterharvestingmetadatalogFilePattern is a third java pattern that controls which files in the logs subdirectory of the crawldir are to be added as log files to the metadata ARC.
