Extending search index

Yehuda Lando asked on April 23, 2014 06:08


I have a document type that has a field "AuthorID" which stores the ID of the author that comes from a custom table. I'd like to have the option of sorting smart search results by the author name.

Is it possible to extend the "Documents" search index type so it will get the author name and store it in the index?

You can have a Custom Table Item Selector as a control type if you choose text as the data type. Then you simply choose the custom table and enter the macro for the column name data and the unique identifying column name. Should be able to get what you're looking for there I believe.
