Search Scope Visibility

By James|March 25, 2013|,

When creating search scopes, consider the following:

If a search scope is created for a site collection, the scope will ONLY be available for the site collection where it was created.  To create a shared search scope that will be available across all site collections, use Central Administration to create a shared search scope.

Site Collection Search Scope Settings

Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Collection Administration -> Search scopes

Central Administration Search Scope Settings

Application Management -> Manage service applications -> "Your Search Service Application" -> Queries and Results -> Scopes

Activating Scopes

After the scope is created, don't forget to display it.  Modify "Display Groups" under site collection search scope settings.
