In Lotus Quickr for Domino, when a user performs a quick or advanced search, by default the results will include older versions of the posting or file. How do you prevent older versions of a document or posting from appearing in the search result on a Quickr for Domino server that has the versioning feature enabled?
This behavior is a product limitation of the search feature in the releases of Lotus Quickr services for Lotus Domino prior to 188.8.131.52.
This limitation affects servers that have the notes.ini parameter h_VersionType set to explicit or implicit.
Resolving the problem
This limitation has been addressed in Lotus Quickr 8.2 fix pack 10 (184.108.40.206), tracked as SPR# RELS7KNUHE. If you want to exclude the older versions of a content item from the search results, then you need to
- Upgrade the Lotus Quickr server to version 8.2
- Apply Fix Pack 10 (220.127.116.11) or later
- Add the notes.ini parameter h_DisplayNoVersions=1
- Restart the server for the changes to take effect
Once this ini setting is applied, Quickr for Domino performs an additional check prior to returning the results of a search. This check scans the backend Notes document for every post that matches the search criteria for either h_isHidden=1 or h_IsPublished=0. If either is true, the documents will be excluded from the search result list that is displayed to the user. This configuration change affects every place on the server.
