I have several content type names.

I want to remove one from being indexed so that it doesnt show on my refinement panel

1 Answer 1


Modify the default "All Sites" search scope and add a rule to exclude the specific content type.

First you might need to make the content type a managed property in order to use it in scope rules. Instructions here.

Other option is probably to modify the refinement panel itself and hide the specific CT. Example here.
