Due to a requirement I have set the option "Allow this site to appear in search results?" to No. Later I have changed that options to Yes, but none of the site content are not retrieved by search. I have re-indexed the site and a list as well and still those are not indexed. Now 24 hours gone after making it to yes.

Appreciate if anyone can suggest a solution.

  • Are the lists in the lists settings also set "Allow items from this list to appear in search results"? – M.P. Aug 10 '18 at 8:36
  • Yes, "Allow items from this list to appear in search results?" is set to yes. – Damitha Aug 10 '18 at 11:43

In SharePoint Online, crawling happens automatically based on the defined crawl schedule. And the crawling time will increase if it is a heavy environment.

We cannot manually start a full crawl for contents or control crawl in SharePoint online.

It is recommended that open a support case if content is not being reflected as expected in search within 24 hours.

You can contact Office 365 technical support from Support > New Service request.

Provide as much additional information as possible to describe your issue.
