We want to build our own feed for FUSE - what format should we use?

Baseline FUSE Search Fields-based Web Service Reader Requirements

  1. Service must be accessible via a single URL.

  2. Supported authentication mechanisms: IP-based, BASIC AUTH, URL-based (put the secret in the URL itself).

  3. URL must return valid XML or JSON format. JSON is preferred.

  4. The XML or JSON must contain an array of objects identifiable via a single parent.

  5. Each object in the array should represent a document and should have attributes such as link, last updated date-time, title, content (for indexing), pdf link reference, etc.

  6. All data must be returned in one request (no pagination - although we can handle pagination if we must).
