A content property is defined as either single-valued or multivalued:

  • If you define a content property as single-valued, the metadata query engine indexes only the first occurrence of it for any given object, regardless of how many times it occurs in the custom metadata XML for that object.
  • If you define a content property as multivalued, the metadata query engine indexes all occurrences of it in the custom metadata XML for an object.

For example, based on the sample custom metadata XML, you would define as multivalued a content property that extracts the value of the specialty element.

With the metadata query API, users can sort query results based on single-valued content properties but not on multivalued properties.
