Power Apps Portal – Remove an Entity from Global Search

If you are not familiar with Portal ‘Global Search’, please refer my other article to learn the steps to configure global search for an entity.

In this article, how to remove global search for a configured entity.

Disable the ‘Search Index’:

  • Open the entity you would want to disable the ‘Global Search’ and navigate to ‘Views’ and open ‘Portal Search’ view.

  • Rename the ‘Portal Search’ view and ensure the new name doesn’t have the Portal Search term.
  • Save & Publish.
  • This step will block the entity from getting indexed.
  • Connect to Portal and rebuild the ‘Search Index’ by navigating to ‘../_Services/about’ page and click on ‘Rebuild search index’.

GS_12

Remove the entity from search filters in ‘Site Settings’:

  • Open the ‘Portal Management’ Model-driven App and go to ‘Site Settings’.
  • Open the ‘search/filters’ site setting and remove the entry for the entity you would want to disable Global Search.
  • As an example, for Account the entry would be ”Accounts:account‘. Remove the entry.

GS_4

  • Save the ‘search/filters’ site setting.
