I want to exclude certain documents from the All Sites search scope, if they have a column A value of X. Column A is a choice column with multiple values that exists in each document libraries (not a shared column).
Column A shows up as a crawled property under office, and I have created a metadata managed property B that I have linked to column A. I have also done a scope update followed by a full crawl of the sharepoint sites in question, after I have created a scope rule to exclude results where B = X.
It is saying that that 137 documents have the managed property and in the scope rule it says 4 results are affected. However there are many more than 4 documents in the libraries that have A set to X. I can still find these in the search, which is searching the All Sites scope (default search centre all sites tab)
Have I set this up wrong, and if not why are not all these documents excluded from search?
