External Url in Site Map in SP 2013


  • Hi,

    I have a a SharePoint 2013 platform OnPrem with 4 internet web site in https.
    I  have generated the sitemap.xml with out of box sharepoint 2013 feature.
    On 3 site the sitemap.xml is good but on the fourth, the sitemap contains urls of the other 3 sites.
    Has anyone ever had the case? Is it possible to filter external urls in the robot.txt file ?

  • Hi Olivier,

    Whether the four sites are different site collections? Whether the other 3 sites are the subsites of the 4<sup>th</sup> site?

    Per my knowledge, the sitemap.xml file was only generated in the site collection level and includes the pages and their metadata in the current site collection.

    How did you generate the sitemap.xml file? Check the article below to verify the step by step procedure to generate sitemap:

  • Hi Grace,

    Thanks for your response.

    Each internet web site is on a different web application, so a different site collection.

    Anonymous access is configured for each web app.

    sitemap.xml is generated by crawl search engine and time job like mentionned on your post.

    I reset index search and launch a new crawl but the issue remains.

    Best regards,
