Extra fields

Purpose

Enterprise Search allows for extra fields, in addition to standard fields for the document content, for example doc_title and doc_body, and fields added by the Enterprise Search solution, for example system_number and system_location.

Extra fields can be introduced:

  • By configuring a source that uses a provider that adds extra fields. FieldĀ extra_sms_contenttype_code is an example of a field added by the Smartsite provider.
  • By configuring extra fields at silo wide level, for unanticipated fields, for example extra_category or extra_entitytype.

Enterprise Search supports:

  • to include the extra fields at index time
  • to use the extra fields at search time
  • to retrieve the extra fields of a found document for presentation purposes or other purposes.
