  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    Folders have unique permissions in Document library.Is this applicable to SharePoint enterprise search also?

    Means if one folder have unique permission then only that folder shows in search results? or all the folders shows in search results.

    Please explain how its work.

    Thanks,

    Thirupathi

  • Per my understand, SharePoint search is based on content source, crawling.

    One use can get result if the contents exist and crawled but he may not have permission to view it.

    But I am not sure whether it is correct.

  • Hi Thirupathi456, 

    By default, Enterprise Search results are trimmed at query time, based on the identity of the user who submitted the query. When results are returned for a user's search, the Query engine performs an access check for the user's identity against the security descriptor stored in the content index for each item in the search results. The Query engine then removes any items in the search results that the user does not have access to, so that the user never sees these results.
