We can't configure hybrid search since the index will reside in the cloud. The one-way outbound search has the problem of seperate result blocks.

Has anyone tried to crawl SharePoint Online from SharePoint Server 2013?

I think about it that way:

  1. Change the crawl account to a synced account
  2. Give the crawl account full read in SharePoint Online
  3. Create a new content source (Web Site or SharePoint Site)

Is there a statement from Microsoft that it's not possible or not recommended?

  • I think it is. Have you tried configuring it? – Nisarg Apr 27 '16 at 13:32
  • I tried but always got time outs and some errors about the robot.txt (what shouldn't be the reason to fail). I tried to crawl as website and as SharePoint Site. No success. – engineerer May 4 '16 at 4:57
