Subject RE: User rights for Sharepoint connector

Hi Julien,

for crawling SharePoint you should use the *Default Content Access Account* configured in
the SharePoint *Search Service Application* (Central Administration > Manage Service Applications
> Search Service Application). This user should have sufficient permissions to access all
content in your SharePoint server.

Hope this helps

Subject: User rights for Sharepoint connector

Hi folks,

I am trying to crawl a SharePoint 2016 using MCF and I have some troubles.

First time I tried to configure the SharePoint repository connector the status was 'Crawl
user did not authenticate properly", after few investigations I found that the user I configured
was unable to use SOAP action 'GetListCollections' from the SP webservice. Then I added this
user to the "Style Resource Readers" group (not sure it is the good english name of the group)
and it resolved the problem.
Then I again got a 401 error on the GetPermissionCollection SOAP action. 
The ManifoldCF agent for SP 2016 is correctly installed and the web page http://myserver:myport/mysite/_vti_bin/MCPermissions.asmx
is returning what is expected in the documentation.

So my question is : do you know what are the specific rights required for my user ? I know
that with admin rights on the SP site it works but I would like to avoid an admin user to
crawl my site.

Thanks for your help !
