Location Definition File Schema Reference

Last modified: May 01, 2010

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010

In SharePoint Server search, the federated search location configuration details are specified in a location definition (.osdx) file.

Important note Important

In Enterprise Search in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, the location definition file extension was .fld. You can still import location definitions files with the .fld extension in SharePoint Server 2010, but you should use the .osdx extension when you create new location definition files.

The Location Definition File Schema extends the OpenSearch description document specification.
