This topic introduces access rights when working with Episerver Search & Navigation (formerly Episerver Find), and describes how to control access for content displayed in search results.
Access right filtering of search results
When integrating Search & Navigation with Episerver CMS, the search engine does not filter documents (such as pages or files) according to access rights. However, the return values from the IContent extension methods RolesWithReadAccess and UsersWithReadAccess are indexed. You can use these methods to ensure that only users with access rights to the supplied roles/users see the content.
SearchClient.Instance.Search<StandardPage>() .For("Possibly secret stuff") .Filter(x => x.RolesWithReadAccess().Match("Everyone")) .GetContentResult();
Controlling access to UI features
Members assigned to the roles WebAdmins, Administrators, SearchAdmins, and SearchEditors can access the Search & Navigation user interface. Only WebAdmins, Administrators, and SearchAdmins can clear indices. See Shell module.
