Excluding facet values

How can i exclude certain facet values from displaying without having to define allowedValues? I don't want to maintain a list of future possible values, I just want to specify values that should never be displayed.

Its been a few years since this question has been asked. Has there been any updates to support excluding values from a facet?

Sadly there is no way to do that at the moment, but this is a good idea that has been asked for a couple of times. Support for this should start at the index level so you might want to take the idea to the appropriate folks.

I would need the support at the Interface level since these documents are used in multiple environments (external and internal) and I would just want to suppress the facet value in the external view.

Indeed, but we can't do that in the UI if the index doesn't provides us with the feature :) We can't just filter out at the UI level without introducing nasty corner cases.
