Index fields

A summary table of all the index fields in PageSeeder and items for which they are available.

A more detailed definition of each field can be found in Index field definitions.

For more explanations on the abbreviations used in this document see Legend & explanations.

Setting the group property indexXFields to true and then re-indexing the group adds all document metadata fields extracted by Tika to the index with the prefix x-.

The input media type is the MIME type received by the index engine. It is slightly different from the psmediatype index field.

Field types 

Lucene field types legend
SStoredThe field value is stored in the index in full and is available in search results
ZCompressedThe value is stored in the index in a compressed format
IIndexedThe value is indexed as it is and is case sensitive
TTokenizedThe value is split into tokens which is not case sensitive
NNumberThe value is stored as a integer value
LLongThe value is stored as a long value
?OptionalWhen applicable for the mediatype, the field might not always appear in the index
*Zero-or-moreWhen applicable for the mediatype, the field might appear in the index multiple times
+One-or-moreWhen applicable for the mediatype, the field appears in the index at least once

If a field is not tokenized, it must be searched using its exact value including correct case (for example, “smith” or “john smith” wont match “John Smith”).
