Any items that are added to Squirro go through the Squirro Pipeline. In that Pipeline the items are normalized and enriched, before they are written into the index. This process is called Data Enrichment and is highly configurable.

Working with enrichments is covered in the Enrichment Webinar.
Types of Enrichments
Four different type of enrichments are available:
- Built-in enrichments which can be configured on a per-source basis.
- Search Tagging can add keywords to items based on their matching a pre-defined search query including Smart Filters.
- Known Entity Extraction which can link content to entities extracted from a CRM or other internal systems.
- Pipelets are plugins for the pipeline that can be added to the Squirro platform by 3rd party developers.
Enrichments can be configured on two levels: per project and per source.
The same functionality is also available through the API by using the Enrichments resources.
The Built-in enrichments and the Pipelets can be configured for individual sources. This is done with the processing config, which can be provided when creating or updating subscriptions (see the Subscriptions resource).
