Running "Search Link" Queries Through a Browser as a Guest User (Doc ID 450121.1)

Last updated on MAY 22, 2020

Version: 7.1.1

Symptoms

When a person receives a link for a search query that someone else or perhaps themselves have run, and they try to go to the link provided without being logged in, they get different results based on the security of the documents that should be returned.

Should the query prompt for credentials when someone clicks on the link, as opposed to searching (executing the query) as a guest user?
