"Display Field" in index, Sitecore 8

I have a coveo index where a lot of the fields I'm trying to use, the "Display Field" checkbox is being unchecked…

I've gone in and manually checked the "Display Field" for some of them, then when I rerun the index in Sitecore I go back and look and the "Display Field" for that index is now unchecked.

Here is one of the fields being declared in the Coveo.SearchProvider.config…

<fieldType fieldName="brandname" isFacet="true" isSortable="true" includeForFreeTextSearch="true" isMultiValue="true" settingType="Coveo.Framework.Configuration.FieldConfiguration, Coveo.Framework"/>

Looking at the documentation, the "Display Field" setting should default to "true", so I'm not sure what could be toggling it?

Is there another setting somewhere in the Coveo admin tool that could affect this?

Which version of Coveo for Sitecore are you on? Which version of CES?

There was a bug with early versions of Coveo for Sitecore 4, could you check if you have matching CES and CFS versions from here: https://developers.coveo.com/display/SitecoreV4/Downloads

Also validate that you have hotfixes for CES.

Sorry, I should have included that.

Sitecore 8.0 rev. 150812
Coveo Enterprise Search 7.0 x64 (8691) for Sitecore
Coveo for Sitecore 80 3.0 (1116)
Coveo Search API 8.0.1130

Sitecore Diagnostics page says things are compatible… https://www.screencast.com/t/iPuHLtbPlOL

What CES hotfixes?

You are using the December 2016 version of CES and the December 2015 version of CFS. Did you upgrade CES recently?

The diagnostic page does not validate the CES version matching with CFS (although it would be a really cool feature, taking note of this :))

Forget about the hotfix, you are not on the specific version requiring that hotfix :)

I'm recreating an environment, so I might have just grabbed a more recent version of the CES than what was previously used.

Could this be causing the issue, should I update the CFS?

Yes, that would most likely fix it :)
