This default behavior keeps the server from tying up worker threads on time-consuming, unindexed searches. However, you can turn off the enforcement of the unindexed-search privilege to allow any client to perform an unindexed search.

  1. Set the disabled-privilege global configuration property to unindexed-search as follows.
    $ bin/dsconfig set-global-configuration-prop \
      --set disabled-privilege:unindexed-search
  2. If you choose to allow unindexed searches, cap the maximum number of concurrent unindexed search requests using the maximum-concurrent-unindexed-searches global configuration property.
    $ bin/dsconfig set-global-configuration-prop \
      --set maximum-concurrent-unindexed-searches:2
  3. Limit unindexed search privileges for particular clients using the allow-unindexedsearches property of the client connection policy.
