This option defines a comma separated list of metadata classes or regex patterns to be supplied to the padre-sw -SF= option, which define the metadata classes to be stored when a user clicks on a result. The metadata stored is for the result the user clicks on. The metadata is only stored if search sessions are enabled.

Setting the key

Set this configuration key in the results page (preferred) or search package configuration.

Use the configuration key editor to add or edit the ui.modern.session.search_history.metadata key, and set the value. This can be set to any valid List<String> value.

Default value


By default no metadata is stored.



Causes the modern UI to store the metadata in metadata classes t and a when a user clicks on a result when search sessions are enabled.
