I have two users group Contributor & Reader. And I have the following hierarchy:-
Site Collection (containing both Contributor & Reader )
-Subsite A (containing both Contributor & Reader )
-Subsite B (containing both Contributor & Reader )
-Subsite C (only admin, Contribur and reader are not allowed to see this sub site)
The problem I am facing is as follow:-
- If the admin want to search for the word “test” then all the pages will be retrieved correctly.
- If any user inside the contributor or reader groups search for the word ”test”, then no result will be returned. although both of them can see pages containing the word “test”. And I have manually crawl all the web application content before trying the search.
So what is causing this?, and do I have to give the users read permission on Subsite C ,, for the search to work ?.
