Sometimes I face scenarios inside my SharePoint server 2013 that I cannot understand. Recently I realize the following inside my SharePoint web applications search scope.
Now I have three site collections as follow:-
And I rely on the default search managed service created inside my central administration.
Now I noticed this scenario.
- Let say I am inside the home page for my
http://servername/site collection, and inside the built-in search box, I typed the word “procedures” then I will get results from the three site collections. But if I went to let say to
http://servername/wikisite collection and I type the same word “procedures” then I will only get results from the current site collection
http://servername/wiki. So not sure what is causing these scenarios, although this is something I found useful but I am trying to understand how SharePoint implements this internally. So does SharePoint search treat
http://servernamesite collection a parent site collection and the other 2 site collections as its child, so if I am searching from
http://servernameI will get results from its child
