How do i exclude a node's property from the search indexing?
This can be done in the
indexing_config.xml found in
You will need to use the
nodeScopeIndex attribute that controls whether a string property is added to the full text index. This is used when you do a jcr:contains(., 'foo') instead of jcr:contains(@prop, 'foo').
In CQ5.2.1 and earlier, this is an all inclusive. Instead of excluding them using the index-rule, you will need to explicitly include these properties that are required. These properties that are listed will be indexed and a property that isn"t listed will not be indexed.
If there are no index rules (by the default installation), all properties of the node are indexed.
Example to include a property for the index-rule (CQ5.2.1 and earlier)
<index-rule nodeType="nt:base"> <property nodeScopeIndex="true">cq:Template</property> <property nodeScopeIndex="true">subtitle</property> . . </index-rule>
In CQ5.3, you don"t need to explicitly include these properties that require to be indexed. Now, you can exclude them which makes it easier to maintain. There is a list of known properties of a node that are unnecessary (by the default installation) which are excluded. There is a index-rule property
isRegexp which includes all the rest of the properties to be indexed.
Example of exclude a property for the index-rule (CQ5.3)
<index-rule nodeType="nt:base"> . . <property nodeScopeIndex="false">sling:vanityPath</property> <property isRegexp="true">.*:.*</property> </index-rule>
