Document Library search is not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have uploaded more than 1000 records of our document library. If we search file name or any keyword is not working using Find a file search text box.

    How can we check our document library search is configured properly?

  • Hi

    first check if document library is available for search, you can find it in Library Settings/ Advanced Settings of the current lib. ALSO !!!! pay attention that content approval is disabled for lib, otherwise you should approve all documents before crawling, if document is not approved it will not appear in search results. CHeck it in Lib settings/Vesrioning settings

    then check in Search Service Application settings open Crawl logs and see if items were picked up by crawler

    Start new full crawl if needed

  • Check the versioning settings. If the draft version is enabled and "Only users with edit capability can see drafts" is selected, search will crawl only the items in that document library which has major version published.

    By default search doesn't crawl the draft items in a document library unless versioning setting is set for users with read permission to see the drafts.
