The Search Result Field Object

The Search Result Field object lists all fields that are included with and used by every search index table created for the search engine. Standard Result Fields are predefined for the search engine at installation and represent an application defined physical column in the search table, or a reserved column required by the search engine. All search tables that belong to the search engine will include and use all fields defined under Result Fields.

Siebel is installed with a default set of Search Engine Result Fields. There is no need to create additional fields, unless you have a requirement. For instructions on how to customize the result fields see Advanced Configuration of Search Operations.
