WCC Connector Customization

Watson WCC Connector does not meet our business requirement with the way UCM has been implemented. We have some custom implementations with UCM, for example, we have meta information called searchable (yes/no), searchable NO marked content should not be indexed with Watson.

As a follow up to the PMR 18051,122,000,
- we did not enable the flag AllowNativeQuery, which will introduce SQL injection,
- and the other option to run connector only on Full crawl mode everytime by refreshing collection on a set interval. This will affect our Near real time search experience.

For the requirement we have, during full crawl mode, we were able to limit the non-searchable contents by setting the data filter. But,during continuous update mode, it is not able to crawl, as it is not able to merge UCM Query(dSearchable `Yes`) with internal continuous update SQL query.

We shall have a quick call to discuss more about this. Let me know, i shall setup one.
