Default crawled file name extensions and parsed file types in SharePoint Server 2013

SharePoint 2013
 

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2013-12-18

Summary:  Learn which file name extensions SharePoint 2013 crawls by default and which file types it parses by default.

The crawl component can only crawl a file if the list on the Manage File Types page includes the file name extension. The content processing component can only parse the contents of a crawled file:

  • When it has a format handler that can parse the file format.

  • When it is enabled to use the format handler to parse files that have the file format and file name extension.

By default, SharePoint 2013 satisfies these requirements for many file types.

The following table shows all the file formats that SharePoint 2013 has built-in format handlers for. The table shows one or several format ID and file name extensions for each file format. By default SharePoint 2013 is enabled to parse files that have these file formats and file name extensions. For each file name extension the table also indicates whether the Manage File Types page by default includes the file name extension.
