Amazon Kendra Expanded Data Formats Support
Amazon Kendra is an intelligent search service powered by machine learning, enabling organizations to provide relevant information to customers and employees, when they need it. Starting today, AWS customers can index documents of additional data types in addition to the five types previously supported. Critical information across multiple data sources in an enterprise can be present in various data formats. Amazon Kendra customers can now use the Kendra web crawler to index documents with the formats RTF, XML, XSLT, Microsoft Excel, CSV, JSON and Markdown. This is in addition to the previously supported formats which are, HTML, PDF, MS Word, MS PowerPoint, and Plain Text. Customers can search for information from content of all these data formats using Kendra Intelligent Search. This expanded data format support is available in all [AWS regions](/about-aws/global-infrastructure/regional-product-services/) where Amazon Kendra is available including AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.
