Enable Search of Access Controlled Documents with Permissions Override

Some content sources—such as Salesforce and Google Drive—enable admins to limit access to files based on user type. SearchUnify recognizes such access control settings and applies them to search clients with the consequence that a user who cannot access a Salesforce report in your org, cannot find it through search too. But this default setting has a drawback.

Your search client is rarely the user who is allowed to access documents. It means that your gated content source will not display in the search client until default permissions are bypassed.

Permissions Override bypasses default access control permissions to enable your search client to fetch results.

Turn on Permissions Override

In order to override access control settings for a content source, navigate to Content Sources screen and toggle the Permissions Override switch to the right.
