Excluding fields

This topic describes how to exclude public properties on indexed objects in Episerver Find.

How it works

By default, all public properties on an object are included when indexing it. The simplest way to exclude a property is to annotate it with the JsonIgnore attribute (found in the Newtonsoft.Json namespace).

Example

using Newtonsoft.Json;

public class User
{
    public string Username { get; set; }

    [JsonIgnore]
    public string Password { get; set; }
}

You also can exclude properties, or other previously included fields, by customizing the Client conventions.

//using EPiServer.Find.ClientConventions;

client.Conventions
    .ForInstancesOf<User>()
        .ExcludeField(x => x.Password);

The above code excludes the Password property from instances of the User class as well as instances of classes that inherit the User class.
