New web applications, users not allowed in the web app where Search resides, they can't search. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have added some new web applications, many of whose users will be explicitly denied access to the web applicatoin that the Enterprise Search Center is in, so it doesn't work for them (verified). There will be other web apps aded later whose users will be in a similar situation.

    Would new Enterprise Search Center sites added to the new web apps fix this, break something, or be impossible? Do I need to replace the current search implementation with a new one in a "toy" web app that all users can access?

  • Hi Ed Ahlsen-Girard, 

    As Luigi said, If you deny users access to a web application using policy, that setting will impact only that web application and the site collections (and webs) within: there will be no other effect on the other web applications.

    You can replace the current search implementation with a new one in a "toy" web app that all users can access.

    But search results are security trimmed,  if a user don't have permission on the web applications, then user can not search results from that web application.

  • Hi Ed.

    I presume you've provisioned only one Search Service application in your farm and that Search Service is consumed by the web applications via proxy.
    If you deny users access to a web application using policy, that setting will impact only that web application and the site collections (and webs) within: there will be no other effect on the other web applications.
    Also remember that search results are security trimmed, therefore users who has not been granted access to a web application will not see the results of any query performed against the contents within that web application.

    Bye.
