SharePoint crawler does not have edit filter option after crawler is created

Technote (troubleshooting)


When using Content Analytics with Enterprise Search 3.0 and reviewing the crawler creation steps for a SharePoint crawler, it gave me a link for 'Edit Filter' on the page for 'Select SharePoint sites to Crawl'. However, when I go back into the crawler at a later time and try to edit the crawl space, I no longer have the link for 'Edit Filter'.

Resolving the problem

This is working as designed. The option for 'Edit Filter' is only available during crawler creation.
