I created an external content type by creating a new Visual Studio sharepoint project, and creating a content type (The default Entity1 content type). I created a profile page for it and everything, and when I drilled into the content type in central admin
- BCS, I saw it wasn't marked as crawlable.
I saw this similar post:
So I then created an external content type through SPD, leveraging the same code, and creating an external list and profile page. This time, when I drilled into the external content type in the BCS administration, it showed "Crawlable: Yes".
I figured at that point I was good to go, but when I went to my search service application -> Content Sources -> New Content Source and selected Line of Business Data, and selected BDC, it still says "No external data sources to choose from."
I verified also that the account for crawling has permissions for the external content type.
Are there any other things I should be looking for? From everything I read this should "just work" now :)
