Access rights

Controlling access to Search & Navigation UI features

Members assigned to the roles WebAdmins, Administrators, SearchAdmins, and SearchEditors can access the Search & Navigation (formerly Episerver Find) user interface. Only WebAdmins, Administrators, and SearchAdmins can clear indices.

Search result filtering using access rights

This section explains Access rights filtering if Episerver Search & Navigation 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 Search & Navigation with the Episerver CMS, the return values from the IContent extension methods RolesWithReadAccess and UsersWithReadAccess are indexed. Use these methods to ensure that only users with access rights to the supplied roles/users see the content.


    .For("Possibly secret stuff")
    .Filter(x => x.RolesWithReadAccess().Match("Everyone"))
