impact of excluding GUID field
We are finding GUID and some other unwanted content showing up in the search result excerpt of our web site. My first inclination is to configure the GUID field for exclusion with defaultIndexConfiguration. But then I thought that might remove it for all use cases. Sometimes I need to search Sitecore Desktop by GUID, and I don't want to handicap that.
Is there a best practice that you can advise?
Which processor are you using to generate the HTML version of the indexed items and what is its configuration? Is it the
BasicHtmlContentInBodyProcessor or the
If you are using the
BasicHtmlContentInBodyProcessor processor, you can turn the
IncludeTextFieldsOnly option to true to avoid indexing non-text fields in the body of your documents. That way, they won't show up in the results excerpt.
