The Display Controls enable you to configure the display options for Indexing and for Searching. Select the Add button for the Index Control.

Note: Search Templates created automatically when a Data Definition is Published have the option Search parameter choices set to None (do not use search parameter choice). If you have configured Allowable values (either via a Custom Field Type or a Data Definition’s Index field) and have selected a Display Control, you should edit the automatically created Search Template and set the Search parameter choices to Use Linked Field’s allowed values. This will ensure the Search Template uses the configured Display Control to allow the user to select an Allowable Value for Searching

Select a Compatible Control.
