How to Index Structured Information in SharePoint Sources

The term structured information describes data contained in fields because its nature and function are identified by metadata tags—all content created directly within SharePoint (ex.: list items and area listings) is structured.

Two elements are required in order to index the structured information contained in SharePoint: a SharePoint or custom field (to indicate how CES should sort the information) and a reference (to indicate where CES should search for the information).

Note: For a list of all SharePoint fields built into CES, see Available System Fields. To create a custom field to index structured information not extracted by SharePoint fields, see How to Add New Properties to SharePoint References. Finally, to create a new reference or modify an existing one, see How to Add and Modify SharePoint References.
