Disabling search on object_id

Anyone knows if is it possible to disable search on object_id?

I tried both to remove "_metadata" in search_indexing.conf adding all the metadata I was interested in, and adding "ca_attribute_object_id = { },"
but the simple search still returns object_id related objects when searching for a number.

Any idea is welcome.

Thank you


  • You'll need to remove the 'object_id' entry.

  • Seth, the search_indexing.conf is the one attached herein at the end of message.

    Anyway, after launching caUtils rebuild-search-indices I still can find the objects by object_id, and also by other metadata different by preferrd_labels. I only left the search_indexing.conf in the app/conf/local directory, also removing the one in the app/conf dir.

    My CA version is:
    Component Version
    Application version 1.7.6
    Schema revision 153
    Release type RELEASE
    System GUID 2898bdfc-702e-4705-a7cf-5b14e0e69646

    ca_objects = {
        fields = {
            preferred_labels = { STORE, DONT_TOKENIZE, BOOST = 97 },
            source_id = {},
            lot_id = { DONT_INCLUDE_IN_SEARCH_FORM },
