What is a Continuous crawl?

Definition: Continuous crawl is a content crawling mechanism in SharePoint that provides the most recent content in search results compared to Full or incremental crawl.  

Some Points:

  • By default, continuous crawl runs every 15 mins
  • Continuous crawl works only with content source type: SharePoint Sites
  • Multiple continuous crawls can perform simultaneously. So Even if the existing crawl is scanning a large update, another continuous crawl can start at a defined time and perform scan on rest of the updates.
  • Once the continuous crawl is enabled, you cannot stop or pause it, you can only disable the crawl.
  • You can change the continuous crawl interval only using Microsoft Power Shell.
