Adding a Field to Search On

You may need to add which fields are available to search on in the .NET search interface Advanced Search page to help end-users refine queries without having to enter operators or field queries (see Modifying .NET Search Interface Preferences). Before doing that, you must ensure that the fields are set as Field Queries in the index.

To add a field to search on in the Advanced Search page

  1. On the Coveo server, access the Administration Tool (see Opening the Administration Tool).

  2. Select Configuration > Fields.

  3. In the panel on the left, select the field set containing the field for which you want to control the availability to search on.

  4. In the page that appears, locate the field that you want to use to search on, and then click the corresponding Field Queries check box.

    Notes:

    • You can also select Free Text Queries so that end-users can also query the content of the field using free text queries (see What Are Field Queries and Free Text Queries?).

    • Review the Metadata Name column to identify the original metadata from which the field value is extracted.

  5. Click Apply changes.

What's Next?

Using the .NET Interface Editor, customize the search fields available in the .NET search interface Advanced Search page to help end-users refine queries without having to enter operators or field queries (see Adding Search Fields With the .NET Interface Editor).
