Exclude Facet Values from Content Fields

Exclude is used to remove facet values from content fields, such as Tags and Date.

Fig. 1

For the sake of demonstration, you will see how "oop" and "haskell" are removed from the content field Tag (Fig. 1).

Until the Colubridae '20 release, excluded worked only for Basic Latin facet values. But support has been expanded to cover all major writing systems, including Hanzi (Chinese), Kana (Japanese), and Cyrillic (Russian and others).
