crawl confluence with GSA

Hi,

We try to index confluence with a Google Search Appliance. After many tries, we haven't problems with the crawl when annonymous access is activated. Is there an issue to crawl confluence with a restricted access ? Our wiki contains many critical information and we don't want activate annonymous access for crawling.

Regards,

Olivier

Not really, I've done it before. Frankly, if anonymous access is working, then crawling with a restricted user ID is going to work fine too. Just make sure your user really does only have "view" and absolutely no other access.

Thanks for your response Nic, but there is a big difference between anonymous crawling and authenticated crawling. Based on the tests I have maid, my GSA couldn't login to confluence for crawling with a restricted access. I search an issue for configuring GSA to login into confluence.

Regards,

Olivier
