Search result properties provide metadata about each found document, such as page author, date, category, department, part number, product type, etc.
Some types of metadata, such as title and date are always available for display (though the XSTL template may or may not show them). In addition to these, you are also able to configure custom result properties for each search tab; these can include any type of metadata stored in the search database (see “Creating and Configuring Search Result Properties” for details about how to do this).
The Search Result Properties area enables you to configure the selection of custom properties to include in your result listings. The following settings are provided:
• Property display mode: This setting controls whether or not to display custom properties and, if so, the logic for selecting among the available property groups (see also “Working with Result-Property Groups” for more information about result property groups). The following options are provided:
o Do not display custom properties: No custom properties will be displayed.
o Display all custom properties: All of the properties configured for the current search tab will be shown, regardless of group membership.
o Display custom properties from named groups: Only properties from those groups named in the Include/Exclude… setting will be available (see below).
o Display all custom properties except from named groups: All properties from groups not named in the Include/Exclude… setting will be available (see below).
• Include/Exclude these property groups: This setting is only available when Property display mode is set to display from named groups or display all except the named groups. Use it to list the groups to either include or exclude from the search results. Specify each group using its group-ID (not its display name) and separate groups using a semicolon (;).
