This topic describes how to configure the Enterprise Search crawler account so that the Microsoft SharePoint indexing service can crawl Microsoft Dynamics AX data for Enterprise Search. Before you can configure the account, you must create a domain account for the search crawler. For more information, see Create service accounts.

  1. Add the domain account as a user in Microsoft Dynamics AX. For more information, see Create new users in Microsoft Dynamics AX.

  2. Assign the user to the Search crawler role in Microsoft Dynamics AX. For more information, see Assign users to security roles.

  3. Repeat this procedure for each data partition. If you do not add the Search crawler account to a data partition, users will not see search results for that partition. For more information about data partitions, see Data partitioning architecture.
