define-index-field

Description

Configures an `` IndexField`` for the search domain. Used to create new fields and modify existing ones. You must specify the name of the domain you are configuring and an index field configuration. The index field configuration specifies a unique name, the index field type, and the options you want to configure for the field. The options you can specify depend on the `` IndexFieldType`` . If the field exists, the new configuration replaces the old one. For more information, see Configuring Index Fields in the Amazon CloudSearch Developer Guide .

Options

--domain-name (string)

A string that represents the name of a domain. Domain names are unique across the domains owned by an account within an AWS region. Domain names start with a letter or number and can contain the following characters: a-z (lowercase), 0-9, and - (hyphen).

--name (string)

A string that represents the name of an index field. CloudSearch supports regular index fields as well as dynamic fields. A dynamic field's name defines a pattern that begins or ends with a wildcard. Any document fields that don't map to a regular index field but do match a dynamic field's pattern are configured with the dynamic field's indexing options.

Regular field names begin with a letter and can contain the following characters: a-z (lowercase), 0-9, and _ (underscore). Dynamic field names must begin or end with a wildcard (*). The wildcard can also be the only character in a dynamic field name. Multiple wildcards, and wildcards embedded within a string are not supported.

The name score is reserved and cannot be used as a field name. To reference a document's ID, you can use the name _id .

--type (string)

The type of field. The valid options for a field depend on the field type. For more information about the supported field types, see Configuring Index Fields in the Amazon CloudSearch Developer Guide .

--default-value (string) A value to use for the field if the field isn't specified for a document. This can be important if you are using the field in an expression and that field is not present in every document.

--facet-enabled (boolean)

Whether facet information can be returned for the field.

--search-enabled (boolean)

Whether the contents of the field are searchable.

--return-enabled (boolean)

Whether the contents of the field can be returned in the search results.

--sort-enabled (boolean)

Whether the field can be used to sort the search results.

--highlight-enabled (boolean)

Whether highlights can be returned for the field.

--analysis-scheme (string)

The name of an analysis scheme for a text field.

--cli-input-json (string) Performs service operation based on the JSON string provided. The JSON string follows the format provided by --generate-cli-skeleton. If other arguments are provided on the command line, the CLI values will override the JSON-provided values.

--generate-cli-skeleton (string) Prints a JSON skeleton to standard output without sending an API request. If provided with no value or the value input, prints a sample input JSON that can be used as an argument for --cli-input-json. If provided with the value output, it validates the command inputs and returns a sample output JSON for that command.
