Component Options


fieldsToInclude: IFieldOption[]

Specifies the fields to include in the CSV output.

Note that this does not affect top level properties such as the title, clickUri, printableUri and sysUri, for example.

Default value is undefined, meaning all fields will be exported.


numberOfResults: number

Specifies the number of results to include in the resulting Excel file.

Generating and downloading the Excel file should take a reasonably short amount of time when using the default value. However, this amount of time will increase exponentially as you set the value higher.

Consequently, you should avoid setting this value above the default index limit of 1000 search results.

Default value is 100. Minimum value is 1.
