we have a requirement that while making a free text search in DAM, search should exclude certain number of properties.
For e.g. if i am searching a text "ABC" then it should not search on the excluded properties.
Is there a way to do that in AEM. Any lead will be helpful.
As @Arun_Patidar mentioned, you can either create a custom index or update existing one to exclude the properties.
Properties like evaluatePathRestrictions, excludedPaths etc can be leveraged here to exclude properties here.
Probably you need to create/update index to exclude properties.
Creating custom filter or predicate might help here. Create your own predicate with that particular property by which you want to filter your search results, then while searching asset in dam choose that filter which will narrow down your results. In your case you want opposite of it then try negating the whole condition.
