Exclusion rules don't work as expected RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I add a new exclusion rule to exclude all the urls with /Forms/ in them, I see that the full crawl is missing a lot of items that don't have /Forms/ in their urls. For instance, the following urls are skipped:


    https://stagehelp.xyz.com/searchuat/Documents/Recommended%20file%20types%20in%20CMA.docUse SHIFT+ENTER to open the menu (new window).

    My exclude rule is as follows: https://*.xyz.com/*/Forms/*

    Not sure what is going on here. Could it be because the AllItems.aspx page for the doc libs these documents belong to is under /Pages/Forms/? Maybe, when I cut the link to the AllItems.aspx, it can't crawl the items in those doc libs?

    This is an SP 2010 crawl from one SP farm to another SP farm.
