Faceting Tab

Site Search > Search Experience > Results Configuration > Faceting Tab


“Facets” are the lists of field values that appear on your application’s search page. The lists are populated from the set of matching items, and are used to “drill down” and better “focus” the search. 

The Faceting Tab of Site Search’s Results Configuration screen lets you choose which fields to use for facet generation. For each facet list, you can assign a user-friendly display label. Facet lists should be short, so you can limit the number of displayed values. The Facet Example field on the right shows you a preview of the facet.

Choose an index field from the Facet Field droplist. Give it a human-readable Label. Set the Max Facet Values to show in the list. Decide whether to sort the values by Count or Alphabetical order. The (+) button on the right adds the new facet to the list of facets below. 

Select a facet and click the Move Up and Move Down buttons to control how the facets will be ordered on the search page. 

Save Draft stores your changes so you won’t lose them when you log out. The Publish button updates the search configuration to make the changes active.
