Hi Riccardo,

this is amazing! Do you know if this takes into consideration all of the ACLs/view permissions?

E.g. one project is not visible to somebody, hence, it should not be shown in the search results.

I don’t see it in the doc.

Thank you,

of course, it honors the permission system :slight_smile:

It used to be a bit buggy when first introduced and it was still in beta, but nowadays they have fixed all security issues and the security team is top-notch.
