In Sitefinity 5.1, custom fields can now be easily added to a Sitefinity search index. No-longer do you need to use pipes and custom programming to include custom fields.
The properties for the search results widget and search index now contain a field whereby you add the name of your custom field to include in the search index and results.
Follow the steps below. Note these steps assume you have already created custom fields and data inside of these fields.
The data in your custom fields should now be included in the Sitefinity Search Index Catalog. This method works for all custom fields including custom fields for ecommerce product types. In the video below, I demonstrate how to add custom fields to Sitefinity Ecommerce Product Types and include these into the existing search index.
