Reset A Field Setting

This articles explains how to reset the following field settings:

  • isFacet

  • isMultiValue

  • isSortable


To reset any of the listed field settings, you must make changes both in the Coveo for Sitecore configuration file and in the Coveo Administration Console. If one of the two is set to true, any synchronizing or rebuilding action will cause your reset attempt to fail.

To reset a field setting

  1. Edit the Coveo.SearchProvider.Custom.config file.

  2. Under the fieldMap > fieldNames node, find the field to modify.

  3. Change the setting from the field configuration and set it to false. For example, change isFacet="true" to isFacet="false" to make a field non-facettable.


    If you’re unable to find this element, you might need to copy it from the Coveo.SearchProvider.config file. However, don’t modify the Coveo.SearchProvider.config file, as it may cause issues during upgrades.

  4. Access the Coveo Administration Console (platform-ca | platform-eu | platform-au).

  5. In the Content section, select the Fields tab.

  6. Double-click the line containing the field to modify.

  7. Set the desired field setting (or settings) to false. For example, set isFacet to false to make a field non-facettable.

  8. Click the Save button.
