How to Add Field Sets

A field set is a group of fields which indicates how the Coveo Platform should index the structured content of a repository.

Example: Field sets determine what field queries are allowed (ex.: @sysauthor=John). Note that each source can be indexed using a different field set to reflect its specificities.

To add a field set

  1. Access the Fields Sets page (Configuration > Fields).

  2. Click Add. The Add Fields Set page is displayed.

  3. In the Name field, enter a name to identify the field set.

  4. In the Description field, enter a description for the field set (ex.: a list of the repositories it is meant to index).

  5. Click Save.

Note: The new field set is a copy of the Default one. You can modify its content (see How to Add and Modify Fields).
