Configure Content Sources Linked to a Search Client

The Configure the Content Sources window enables you to configure what fields can be:

  • Indexed and what fields are to be excluded from search results
  • Used in the Title and summary section on a search results page
  • Put in the filters section

Understanding Content Field Columns

The seven content field columns control three settings.

Access Control

  • Searchable. Allow users to find this field in search.

User Experience

Search Efficiency

  • Metadata. Use the information in this field as metadata. Metadata allows SearchUnify to analyze documents and rank them accurately.
  • Autocomplete. Turn on autocomplete for this field.

Configuring Content Sources

  1. Navigate to Search Clients from the menu bar.
  2. Click to start editing a search client.
  3. Open Content Sources.
  4. Select a content type for indexing.
  5. Check or uncheck the boxes against a field to change its behavior in search. Since Mamba '20, it has been possible to make a content field searchable as well as filterable.
