Customise the content auditor search results columns

Managed by | Updated .


The search results screen in content auditor lists out all the documents that match the search query and different filters applied on the various screens in content auditor.

The columns displayed for each result can be customised to report on additional metadata.

Customisation of the search results report does not require an update of the collection, unless the metadata fields are not currently mapped.

Add custom metadata columns to the content auditor search results

  1. Log in to the administration interface, switch to the desired collection and open the file manager.
  2. Edit the collection.cfg and add the following lines. This will remove the format and subjects columns and add columns that display the author and tags metadata field content.

  3. Return to the content auditor search results and observe that the changes are now reflected in the report.
