Is it possible to not display the column "Display URL" within the Global Search page when displaying OData/External Object/Lightning Connect results? The field is not in the External Object's Search Layout section but shows up on the Global Search result page.

You can customize search results form the search layout setting in the external object detail (very similar to configuring any standard/ custom object search settings in salesforce)

Note: Display URL can be removed, extrenal Id cannot be removed from the search layout.

Update: This answer does not work: Display URL shows up and seems to me like a salesforce bug

  • Thanks for the reply. I confirmed that the Display URL was not on any Search Layouts before posting. I even tried adding the Display URL and pushing it to the end of the list but it still shows up in the 2nd spot no matter what.
