I have a field on a page type. It's a text field, but is populated by a dropdown list which has integer values as the option keys. So I end up with an integer value in a database text field.
I want to search on this field, but I'm finding that even when I set this field to be searchable and tokenized, the field in my index is always empty.
The smart search index is a Pages index using Standard analyser. I've tried with other analysers too, but that field is always empty. I'm inspecting the index with Luke to confirm the indexed values. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Hi. Yes, it's Pages. Yes I rebuilt. Yes, it's the correct page type etc. As I say, when I inspect the index content using an index inspector tool I can see the relevant pages in there and I can see the specific field I want is always empty.
Apologies all. The issue here was not with indexes. The app was searching using an index for the wrong culture. The culture it was using didn't have the values I was expecting.
