Adding search predicates for tag lists has worked well.  I have a Language dropdown in the schema that I would like to be able to search against.  Would I create an options list node for those languages and use that node path in the Options field for the Language predicate in the search rail? 

Thanks,

Jim P

Very good.  Got it working correctly.  I created a node under /apps/dam/options/predicates/language that matched exactly the metadata "value" in the language drop-down contained in the schema.  Using the "Options Predicate" in the search rail and set as below, all works well.  In our case, the language drop-down in the schema had been created with the language name as the title, but the "value" contained the 2 or 4 letter language abbreviation.  We needed to make sure the "value" in the search predicate matched exactly what was in the drop-down.  Seems obvious now but at the time just missed the connection.  Thanks Scott, appreciate your help!

One of our AEM Touch UI experts has suggested that you read this doc: https://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-3/administer/content/assets/custom-search-facets.html

Thanks Scott.  If i can get steered in the right direction I'll write up a detailed doc on it.

Thanks again,

I am checking internally to see if anyone has written a blog on this subject. I know there are no docs in this use case.

This is one area the docs are really lean.  One would expect any field in the schema would be easy searchable.  Is there an example anywhere that spells out how a drop-down based field is added to the search rail?

Thanks,

I have a field defined in the metadata schema named Language.  I'd like to add this field to the Assets Admin Search Rail so I can search by language.
