Making Custom Fields in NetSuite Available for Global Search

Custom NetSuite fields can be indexed to be searchable via global search in NetSuite. To index a custom field to be included in global search, a user with permission to edit or create custom fields must check the "Global Search" box on the custom field record. If the "Global Search" box is unavailable, ensure that the "Store Value" box is checked. If it is still unavailable, global search indexing is not supported for the selected data type.

Global search indexing is available for the following data types when the 'Store Value' preference is checked:

  • Currency
  • Decimal Number
  • Email Address
  • Free-Form Text
  • Help
  • Hyperlink
  • Inline HTML
  • Integer Number
  • Percent
  • Phone Number
  • Text Area
