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.
- This article describes how to control this feature via the managed property
SummaryTypeparameter 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, 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?
