      From the Service Manager help file (I have not tried this, myself):

      Using web crawling on a Sharepoint site

      Note: Add the knowledgebase before you define type information and field definitions. Also, you will need to know the proxy configuration of the site you intend to crawl.
      1. Click Knowledge Management > Manage Knowledgebases.
      2. Type a unique name for the new knowledgebase in the Knowledgebase name field (required).
      3. Type a description for the knowledgebase (optional).
      4. Select weblib in the Type field list.
      5. Click Add.
      6. On the Type information tab, provide the required information.
        Example: URL: http://pdosharepoint/default.aspx
        URL path depth: 2
        Max links to follow: 2
        Proxy Configuration: Type all required information in the text boxes.
      7. Click Save.
      8. On the Field Definitions tab, provide all the required information.
        Field Type: MetaTag
        Field Name: GENERATOR
        Alias: Generator
        Data Type: text
        Hitlist: true
      9. Click Save.
      10. Use the Status tab to initialize and create an index for the Sharepoint site. You can also use the Refresh Status button to monitor the web crawling process.
