Add metadata fields and labels to a custom display

  1. After you have created a custom display, click the linked configuration name to add fields to that display.
  2. Select the content models that will use this display.

  3. Add fields to the display by entering Solr field names with type "string." As you type in the Add Field box, field names will be suggested from the index.

  4. After you add fields, you can create custom labels and choose whether to hyperlink the field values in the display. A hyperlinked field value will launch a new Solr search for other records with that same value.

Content models with multiple metadata displays

A content model can have more than one metadata display configuration associated with it. In this case, all fields present in both configurations are displayed, and the order of fields is determined by Solr field weightings.
