Is it possible to control what fields are included in the hithighlightsummary using FAST Search Server? I have some custom fields, which are stored as note in the special text format. I don't want to include them in HitHighlightedSummary, but I want them to be searchable at the same time. I gave thought to this matter and found some solutions, which would be helpful.
- http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg193926.aspx This article describes how to control this feature via the managed property SummaryType parameter in the index schema. I followed all the necessary rules, reset index, made full crawling and got the same results. My custom fields were still in Summary.
- Then I found this article http://www.ableblue.com/blog/archive/2011/11/10/find-me-but-dont-show-me/ It illustrates, how to exclude the unwanted fields using 'ExcludeFromSummary' managed property. This rule was described for SharePoint Search only, not for FAST. But I checked it for FAST Search too by exporting this property to FAST Search. Resetting index, full crawling....the same result. Custom fields were still in Summary.
The only information, that I have found about how HitHighlightedSummary is formed was "By default the hit highlighted summary is configured for the body and title properties". I checked these properties and didn't find any useful information to solve the problem. I couldn't understand, how my custom properties are displayed in the summary. May be I complicate matters and there is only one trick to hide them, isn't there? I will appreciate any help.
