If a user is loged in in FE and uses the indexed search he only receives results which match
to his group settings. If not all public pages where indexed also with exactly his group settings
the user receives less results than a non-logged in user.

As an loged-in user I would expect to get the same or MORE results than a user which is not logged in.

Steps to reproduce:

1. browse through some pages so that the pages gets indexed as non logged in user
2. Search for a word as non logged in user, remember the number of results.
3. Login in frontend
4. Search the same word you used in step 2

The results of the both searches may differ but don't need to.

It would be better if FE users after login receive all public search results (0,-1) plus results only for their group settings.

testet with 4.4 but might also apply to 4.5

IMO not that easy as there is also the option "hide when logged in", therefore e.g this content should not be available when a user is logged in.

the whole concept of indexed_search is to index a page like it is visible for an user

Georg is right.
There are use-cases where the same page looks totally different depending on the logged-in usergroup.
The only way to circumvent this today is to configure the indexer task in order to index every possible group configuration (which is basically what the indexer is there for :))

Such a config should run on a regular basis on order to keep your tables healthy (and small).
