In our environment we are using Office 365, we configured ADFS / ADFS Proxies / and Dirsync to manage SSO.

I was hunting for information on query suggestions for Office 365….query suggestions are handled in two ways:
1: You can upload your own query suggestions through the admin portal
2: SharePoint will dynamical build a list of query suggestions based on previous searches and click throughs:
SharePoint automatically creates a query suggestion when users have clicked a search result for a query at least six times. For example, if users have entered the query word “coffee” and then clicked on a search result six times, then “coffee” automatically becomes a query suggestion.
Recently came across an issue where there were 3 “David Hendry’s” appearing within people search on SharePoint 2013 / Office 365. So if a user searched for me, they would see 3 ‘identical’ people to choose from.
The accounts were:
* My main domain account
* My domain admin account
* My cloud admin account
The requirement was to hide cloud admin and domain admin accounts from the search results.
The resolution was to edit the People Search Core Results web part…
I modified the query (shown below) to include the domain name for internal accounts, remove any accounts containing adm_ and onmicrosoft.com.
