Exclude specific values for a specific facet.

Key: faceted_navigation.black_list.[facet]
Type: List<String>
Can be set in: collection.cfg


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.

Default Value

Empty (no blacklist)


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


⚠ Caveats

  • 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.
