Finding Permissions

  Asked By: Margret    Date: Feb 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 809

Is there any way to easily add an account to anyplace that defines a
new set of permissions, or at least find where all these 'special'
permissions are defined?

Search keeps missing items in the crawl because it doesn't have
permissions. I've been able to add the search account to a
site/list/library as I track down the warnings in the crawl log, but
I'd rather just assign the search account to everything and be done
with it.

In Central Administration you can add  the Search Content Access account
to a Zone Permission Policy which will override local permissions. That
way you can give them read access to every site in a webApplication.
The default content access account  is already set  up that way. Use it
as an example.

Both accounts used for search  (the default as well as the system
account to rule out permissions  problem) were already defined in the
policy for web applications.

The problem I am having is it seems like all of the list contents get
crawled and indexed, folders within libraries show up in the crawl  log
as successful, but all of the .doc files in those libraries come back
with "The object was not found. (The item was deleted because it was
either not found or the crawler was denied access to it.)"

In most cases, I was able to add  the system and search accounts to the
permissions list and the error went away. However, I do have at least
one site that I'm aware of that is not cooperating.

I'm not sure where to look for clues as to what is causing this.

The settings for policy for web applications should take care of it.
Check the policy permission level settings to make sure that it provides
read access all the way down to item access. The web app policy should
override everything for any permission in the policy permission level
that is actually set  (unless that account  also has a deny from some
other policy permission). The only other thing I can think of would be
either individually encrypted docs that were uploaded or an IRM system
if your server doesn't have an IRM client.
