SharePoint Online - Search REST API - Authenticated users(contribute) - No Results RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    The REST API search query works perfectly with Site collection admin login - refining the filters based on content type id. But for the contribute privilege user search query result has no results.

    I could get links from Google to enable for the anonymous users (creating QueryTemplate), but i don't get any pages referring to authenticated users. Do I need to do anything specific to read/edit permissions users? 

    I was trying to create the Query Template XML file, but stuck with getting the farm id, as I do not have access to ADMIN center. I have only privileges as Site Collection Admin. How do I get the FARM ID ?

    Any help is really appreciated.

  • Check whether user with contribute permissions has permissions to content with the particular content type id specially if unique permissions are used across lists and libraries.

  • Yes. the user who created the record does not get the desired result set. But Site Collection Admin got the search results.
