Searchable columns link missing

Brass Contributor

Can't see the link Searchable columns under site settings as described in link to exclude columns.


Even running PnP PowerShell to update the settings of the NoCrawl of the field throws an error.




Is it possible to make a column non searchable?

I don't think "Searchable columns" settings are available in SharePoint Online.


Also, NoCrawl property is not available for SharePoint site columns: Field element (Field) 


Check this similar thread once: Exclude column from search

I have raised a ticket with Microsoft as well, the documentation on does not mention about it being an exclusive on premises feature. I will update the ticket once I hear more from Microsoft.
