Understanding Query Feeds
This section discusses query feed security.
Query Feed Security
The Feed Publishing Framework has two levels of security: feed security and data security. Feed security controls who can see the feed when searching for feeds. Data security controls whether the underlying data can be seen in the feed entries when a user requests the feed document.
Query feed security, which feed administrators specify on the advanced options page, determines feed security, that is, who can see the feed in search results.
