Subject Re: User rights for Sharepoint connector
Date Sat, 23 Dec 2017 15:13:29 GMT
Hi folks,

first of all thank you for your answers. I want to notice you that I 
found a solution for my problem and share it with you.

I have added my user to the User Policy of the SharePoint Web 
Application with Full Read Permissions and I was able to crawl any Site 
of the SharePoint with the ACLs !

I have to thank the GSA documentation in which I found this recommandation !

Also, I didn't test but I think what Konrad proposed is also working :

use the*Default Content Access Account*  configured in the SharePoint*Search Service Application*
 (Central Administration > Manage Service Applications > Search Service Application)

As this account has the same permissions.
