Adding and Managing Fields

Each Coveo organization source automatically comes with a set of standard system fields populated from standard metadata (see Understanding Fields). You can also create fields that are filled with the content or metadata of your choice when adding mappings for sources. All these fields can be used later in search interfaces to optimize the global search experience.

In a Coveo Cloud V2 organization, fields are index-wide data containers. Therefore, you should be aware that modifying a given field can impact multiple sources.
