      Description

      The Web Crawler Connector extracts the MIME type from the request Content-Type header.
      Then it truncates the possible charset=whatever_encoding and lets the pipeline check if the resulting MIME type (without the charset) activities.checkMimeTypeIndexable(contentType); should be ingested.

      When sending the actual RepositoryDocument it sets the full MIME type (with the charset) in the document. This is no major bug, but a small inconsistency since the HttpPoster of the Solr Output Connector performs a "hard" check of the MIME type again which can have different outcome than the preceding check activity.

      I think this was introduced or (better) revealed with CONNECTORS-1482.

      Example:

      • In my scenario a crawled webpage has Content-Type text/html; charset=utf-8
      • the activities.checkMimeTypeIndexable(contentType); is called with text/html
      • the hard check performed by the Solr Connector is called with text/html; charset=utf-8
