Swiftype search on sites that require authentication

Hi,

Can we use Swiftype search on sites that require authentication? We are using IIS with Basic authentication enabled.

Hi Milan,

If asking about crawling content on a site that requires authentication, it’s not currently possible to associate specific credentials to our Search Agent. A common solution is to whitelist our crawler’s fetch requests by specific UID or origin IP block.

We’ve additional information here: Can Swiftype index password protected sites?

Hi Mike,
Can you please elaborate a little bit? How we can whitelist Swiftbot crawler’s fetch requests by specific UID or origin IP block and to keep the authentication on the website?

Milan
