Configure Search to Ignore Certain Content Types

  Asked By: Bennie    Date: Mar 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1710

I have a library that contains multiple content types. I want some of the
content types to be searchable, and I want other content types to not be
searchable. Is this possible?

I don't know a way to do this. You could separate them into different libraries,
and then remove search  visibility on the 'no search' library  (in library
settings)

I'm going to try the following:
1. Add a Site Column to each content  type called Exclude From Search and set
default boolean value accordingly
2. Create a managed property for the site column
3. In the scopes rules, create a rule to exclude items where Exclude From Search
= true.

I'm planning to test this on Friday. Any feedback/suggestions/warnings
beforehand?

You can use scope rules to exclude the items from a search  scope
based on their content  type without needing to add a new managed
property. ContentType is already a managed property. Just make sure
it is marked in SSP administration as a property that it can be used
in scopes, a define a scope with a rule that excludes the content
type.
