Mapping Sitecore Fields to SearchStax Site Search

Once your data is connected to the SearchStax Site Search solution, you will need to map fields from Sitecore to Site Search to see search results. This is accomplished in the Results and Display section where you can assign Sitecore Fields to Mapped Fields.

To simplify things, we created a Results Card with pre-built Mapped Fields. Out of the box, Site Search supports six mapped fields: Ribbon, Title, Paths, Date, Description, and URL. You can add Fields without a mapping as well and they will appended to the end of the Results Card.

Below is a table of common Sitecore Fields that map nicely to Site Search and are usually found in all Sitecore instances.

Site Search Mapping Sitecore Field(s) Description
Title resulttitle_t, itemdisplayname_s, search_title_t, itemtitle_t, title_s Bolded, large text that says about the document is about.
Ribbon Sitenamelabel_s, asset_type_s, _templatename, contenttype_sm Identifies what type of document it is (PDF, blog, web page?)
