Adding a filter to the search result before it is displayed


I am having an index with over 150000 documents which contains documents from various repositories. We have indexed some files which we dont want the users to see. All these documents are external documents(internet webpages etc). I was thinking to add a filter which will filter the resources by checking the file name or the file extension. I know that we can add filer in the crawler to not to pick up certain docs but i need these pages because these pages contains links which i need to index.

Is there anyway we can do this?

    Hi Prakash,

    You could achieve a kind of filtering by using ACLs on document level resp. folder level. Moreover, if you could split the large index into several indexes you could also use ACLs on index level (-> Permissions in the Index Administration iView).

    Does it help?

    Kind regards,

    • Hi Marco,

      yes, definitivly. A Namespace Filter is applied on the Repository Framework level and is applied on at least one complete repository (if not restricted by config). The ResourceListFilter is only applied on FlexUI level, means on a CollectionRendererSetting level. So you can say, it is more a UI filter than a Repository Filter. You can have e.g. two FlexUI iViews pointing to the same repository, but rendering a different set of resources.

      Best regards,
