The requirements: exclude any subfolders in a document library on search results.
Crawling Rules set up in the following order:
https://MySite.*(/.+)*/.*[.].*use regexp checked Include all item in this path checked
https://MySite.*/.*(/.+)*use regexp checked exclude All items in this path checked
After a Index reset and then a full crawl, I could see the in the Crawling log, only 1 item
https://MySite.xxx.com is listed as successfully crawled.
All tests done on the Crawling Rules page was as expected. so:
https://mysite/doclibwill not be crawled.
https://mysite.xxx.com/doclib1/subfolderwill be not be crawled.
https://mysite.xxx.com/doclib1/subfolder/doc.docWill be crawled.
But why none of the actual documents or files are not crawled at all?
I have seen a lot of posts regarding use the technique, so the include for the specific type of item first then the excluding rule for the rest of the paths.
What have I done wrong here? or is it a https issue I wonder?
