Sources refer to the origins of the content to be mapped to your Search Assistant.  The Source page allows you to add and manage content from different sources. Organizational content is found in various formats and sizes including unstructured sources like documents, videos, PDFs, website content, emails, etc and structured sources like JSON, and CSV files.  Structured content is by nature organized and tagged but in unstructured files you have to annotate and tag the content to transform it for better interpretation by SearchAssist.    

Extract and ingest data into  your Search Assistant from diverse and multiple sources like enterprise web pages, and content files to search from. SearchAssist can integrate with your Virtual Assistant and list the services the Virtual Assistant is capable of performing.
