Click System administration > Setup > Search > Update search crawler role.

When you install Enterprise Search, the domain account that is assigned the Search Crawler role in Microsoft Dynamics AX is configured to have read-only permissions for database tables and queries. However, an administrator or developer can add a new table or configure more queries for Search by setting the Searchable property to True. As a result, the permissions of the domain account that has the Search Crawler role are not synchronized with the other queries that are used by Search. As a best practice for security, use this form to reset the permissions of the Search Crawler role to read-only whenever searchable entities are changed in Microsoft Dynamics AX.
