This option specifies a list of terms that should be removed from faceted navigation values.

This parameter is suffixed with the facet name to apply the black list to. The format is: faceted_navigation.black_list.FACET_NAME.

The value is a comma separated list of terms. Those terms will be removed from the values for the given facet. The matches are case-insensitive.

Setting the key

Set this configuration key in the search package or data source configuration.

Use the configuration key editor to add or edit the faceted_navigation.black_list.[facet] key, and set the value. This can be set to any valid List<String> value.

Default value

Empty (no blacklist)


Prevent "Sydney" and "Melbourne" from appearing only on the "Location" facet:



  • Because the list is comma-separated, blacklisting values that contain comma is not possible. To blacklist faceted navigation categories creating commas, a custom plugin is required.
