This topic describes access rights filtering when EPiServer Find is integrated with EPiServer 7/7.5 CMS.

The search engine does not filter documents (such as pages or files) according to access rights. But, if you integrate Find with the EPiServer CMS, the return values from the IContent extension methods RolesWithReadAccess and UsersWithReadAccess are indexed. Use these methods to filter content that the current user does not have permission to see.

For example:

C#
SearchClient.Instance.Search<StandardPage>()
    .For("Possibly secret stuff")
    .Filter(x => x.RolesWithReadAccess().Match("Everyone"))
    .GetContentResult();
