Indexing 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. SharePoint fields are built into CES (see Microsoft SharePoint Fields). You can create a custom field to index structured information not extracted by SharePoint fields (see Adding New Properties to SharePoint References). Finally, you can create a new reference or modify an existing one (see Adding and Modifying SharePoint References).
