Adding the Retrieve People Data for Search Crawlers Permission to the User Profile Service Application

You must add the Retrieve People Data for Search Crawlers permission to the User Profile Service application for the crawling account when you want to perform SharePoint personal site and user profile indexing. This procedure applies only to SharePoint 2010.

To add the Retrieve People Data for Search Crawlers permission to the User Profile Service application

  1. Access SharePoint 2010 Central Administration (Windows Start menu > All Programs > Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products).

  2. In the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration, under Application Management, click Manage service applications.

  3. In the Manage Service Applications page:

    1. Without clicking the link, highlight User Profile Service Application.

      Note: When User Profile Service Application is not present in the service applications list, the User Profile Service Application application may not be installed on your SharePoint farm, and there is therefore no people data to index. Abort this procedure.

    2. In the ribbon, click Administrators.

  4. In the Administrators for User Profile Service Application dialog box:

    1. In the first box, type the crawling account, and then click Add.

    2. In the second box, select the crawling account.

    3. In the Permission for Administrators list, select the Retrieve People Data for Search Crawlers check box, and then click OK.
