Coveo Cloud for Sitecore, question about external sources and facets

I am running Coveo Enterprise Cloud for Sitecore. I have a (Coveo Hive) facet with a Field Name of @ContentTypeTitle.

My Sitecore source has a field of fcontenttypetitle77333. All the values for that field in my Sitecore source appear correctly in the Facet checkboxes.

However, my external Web source has a mapping of contenttypetitle with a text rule of the string Blog Article. I see that this is populated on every entry in my external Web source. However, Blog Article does not appear in the aforementioned facet.

Any ideas on this?

A facet works on a single field. The problem you have is that the field `fcontenttypetitle77333` is not the same as the field `contenttypetitle`.

You need to unify them. To do so, you should declare the sitecore field `contenttypetitle` as external in your configuration.
