​Exclude App Event logs from search results.

Root Cause

​App Events logs are crawled and included in the search results by default.


When the Workplace Builder apps are deployed, the app event logs are crawled and included in the search results. This is the default configuration, however the App Event logs can be excluded from the crawl configuration and will no longer appear in the search index. In order to exclude the App event logs from the crawl configuration complete the following steps:

1. Navigate to Search Administration in Central Administration

2. On the left side navigation under crawling click on Crawl Rules
3. Create a new rule
     b. Exclude all items in this path
     c. Click ok

4.Run a full crawl to ensure event logs are being excluded
