We are setting up FAST Search for SharePoint environment and to provide certain back-end Audit we developed and application which returns the metadata of all the fields to know what is in and what is not.
The user can select the Metadata properties (Managed Properties like DateCreated, Author, Title etc) from the list and enter a keyword. This will result a tabular data which contains the details of selected Metadata columns.
Now the problem comes when the user just wants to filter the results to certain file type. For example: If the user wants to see Metadata for just documents(.docx) or sometimes for just Webpages (.html/.aspx).
Need to know if there are options with back-end to define "Search Scopes" for both these file types? or do we need to make this filter in the FQL Query ?
