The Search Result Actions page provides a list of actions currently available to result from lists on your selected site and search tab. You can see the following information here:
• Action Groups and Group Memberships: In the result-action list, action groups are shown in left-justified bold type; the result actions belonging to each group are shown in standard type, indented below their group name.
• Action ID: These are listed in the ID column. This is how the result action is identified on the various Search & Preview configuration pages. As mentioned above, each action ID is shown in standard type and indented below the action group to which it belongs.
• Action Name: These are listed in the Name column. The names are shown to users in the result list.
• Inheritance Status: As with most Search & Preview settings, result actions are inherited along the lines of your SharePoint site structure. Icons in the Inherited column indicate whether each result actions has inherited some or all of its settings from a higher-level site as follows:
|This icon in the Inherited column indicates a result action that has been inherited from a higher site level without any local overrides. You can break the inheritance and make custom settings for the local site by using the action menus (see below). The icon is shown in gray for actions that are hidden starting at the current level and below.
|This icon in the Inherited column indicates a result action that was originally inherited from a higher site level but has since been customized. These actions no longer track updates made at higher site levels—all settings are now defined locally. These local overrides are also inherited by child sites (if any). You can reinstate the inheritance of any of these actions by using the action menus (see below). The icon is shown in gray for actions that are hidden starting at the current level and below.
|Result actions that do not show an icon in the Inherited column have been created at the local level and are not available at higher levels. These actions will be inherited by child sites (if any).
|This icon in the Inherited column indicates a result action that has been both created and hidden at the local level (see below for details about hidden actions).
|Note: Even at the top, farm level you will see inheritance indicators. Result actions (and other settings) shown as inherited or customized at this level are inheriting their settings from the Search & Preview factory defaults. You can think of the defaults as existing as a virtual site level immediately above the farm level. This provides a good way to handle upgrades to Search & Preview, enabling new defaults to be loaded into your system during an upgrade without affecting your configuration work so far. You can override, revert and/or hide any of these settings at the farm level as required, just as on other levels. See below for the relevant commands.
