Can you deploy custom skills in cognitive search with SharePoint as the datasource

I've set up an index and indexer using SharePoint as the data source, but at the moment it's behaving as though the skillset isn't accessing the documents from the data source? Is this a fault in my code, or does SharePoint handle data differently when sending it to the datasource compared to using Azure Blob Storage?

This isn't really covered on the page as it's a preview skill, and because the datasource isn't a part of the blob, I don't seem to be able to run a debug session either. Just wondering if this is a problem in my code, or something that isn't yet handled by the skill because it's in preview?

I've got both a custom skill and some pre-written ones running, and they're either returning "null" or a blank array. Just wondering if this is something anyone else has come across before?

    Hi @Misha Anker ,

    Thanks for the additional info. Yes, SharePoint is supported for AI enrichment. To set up the SharePoint indexer, you'll need to perform some tasks in the Azure portal and others through the preview REST API. To accomplish this please see this document:
    Hope that helps.
