Result Source to Query Just the Content of a Web Application RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I would like to create a Result Source that is for a single Web Application.  But I am struggling to understand what the query would be.  Has anyone done this?

    Thank you,

  • Hi Bob,

    According to your description, my understanding is that you want to restrict the result source to query the content in a specified web application.

    I recommend to edit the Search Result web part and click Change Query to restrict the scope.

    Please follow the steps below:

    1. On the BASICS tab, make sure that you are in Advanced Mode. Click Switch to Quick Mode in the top right corner if you are in Advanced Mode.
    2. In the Select a query section, select a result source to specify which content should be searched.
    3. In the Restrict by app section, select specific a URL, and enter the web application url.

    Best regards.
