In this post, we will discuss how we can bring draft items in SharePoint 2013 search results. Recently while working in a MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2013 migration project, we got this requirement. The requirement is even if the document is saved as a draft those should come in the search result.

By default, the items that are in draft mode, will not be crawled. The crawler will pick items published in the major version. For this, we need to do the below settings.
Go to the library settings. Then click on “Versioning settings” under “General Settings”.
In the “Versioning Settings,” page go to the “Draft Item Security” section and select the radio button “Any user who can read items”.
After this, you can do an incremental crawl and the crawler will pick up those items.
Hope this will be helpful.
