Custom Field in Search Result
I'm Using Coveo's Free edition Search and i want the Alias name to be part of the search result as well. I have a field alias target but that is not the one i'm looking for. Is it possible to get the alias name tagged with the search result item in the result itself as reverse mapping is consuming a lot of time. Any help in this.
We need a few more information about your setup to help you with this question I think.
Is "alias target" a Sitecore field on your Sitecore items and it is indexed in your CES documents? What is its field value format in your CES documents? Is "alias name" also a Sitecore field on your Sitecore items?
Without more details, I would guess that your "alias target" Sitecore field stores the ID of the alias you set on an item. And I guess you would rather want the name of the related alias item in another field on your CES documents. This use case is covered by the
ReferencedFieldComputedField Coveo computed field (see Creating a Computed Field for a Referenced Item). It will work if your alias items have their name in a field. If their name is stored in the "Name" property of the items, you will have to create your own computed field to resolve the alias item names (see TagsNamesComputedField for an example with tag items).
