Exclude attribute from search but still retreive it

Hello Algolia team, I have a question because I can’t find an answer.
It is possible to exlude specific attribute from search? For example I want to retreive uuid but I don’t want to search for it.

This leads me to this question because I can’t find an option that would apply exact match ONLY for specific attribute, like uuid.

Searching for number 3304 is now looking for uuid “81d23d5a-3304-4195-a441-812d81bf3f1e” and I want to avoid it.


Hi @it11, If you don’t want the attribute to be searched, do not include it in your searchable attributes list. If you don’t want to include an attribute in your response, use the attributesToRetrieve to only include the attributes you do want to retrieve.
