Is there a way to suppress results from the search bar for open data portal searches? I've uploaded one foot contours for our entire county to our open data portal in 186 different squares. We're planning on making them accessible through a web map that links to each individual dataset's open data portal page. However, this means that each individual square's dataset appears when searching through all data on the portal, this looks messy and could be confusing. Is there any way to make data not appear via search, and only make it visible through clicking a link (which would be found on our web map)? 

Here is the web map:

Hi Alexander,

The Hub indexes each item shared via ArcGIS Online and there is no way to restrict what shows up other than not sharing it. My best recommendation would be to package your downloads in a download app that you then share to your open data portal, as has been done in this example: https://hub.arcgis.com/app/fd49c0b1d6414828b4034187ff63c6fe

You can find additional examples of download applications shared to the Hub here: https://hub.arcgis.com/search?collection=App%2CMap&q=download&type=Web%20Mapping%20Application

Hope that helps,

Patrick
