Defines the no index rules that will be run by the inject no-index filter (InjectNoIndexFilterProvider).

When a matching rule is encountered the no-index filter will wrap the selected element in Funnelback no-index tags. This will result in the selected content being ignored by the index.

The format allows for setting multiple rules for different URLs in data source configuration:



  • N: index number

  • URL-PATTERN: URL pattern (standard Java-type regular expressions)

  • COMMA-SEPARATED-LIST-OF-SELECTORS: jsoup CSS-like selector; Supports multiple selectors per URL pattern: URL-PATTERN SELECTOR1,SELECTOR2

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 filter.noindex.[keyName] key, and set the value. This can be set to any valid String value.

Default value

filter.noindex.1=.* header,footer
