Configuring Displays for Export

edited March 2017 in Troubleshooting
I'm trying to generate some reports using a display for a particular search. 
In looking at - I'm trying to figure out where this nugget goes: 
show_empty_valuesIf yes all values will be displayed, whether there is content for them or not.1 (show empty) or 0 (don't show)
This would seemingly solve my issue - but there's no place to configure it in the UI (that I'm  finding), and I'm not finding where I would put it trolling through the files for CA either. Where do I configure this?


  • In Manage / My displays menu item open the display you want to modify. There you will find a checkbox named "Display empty values?".
  • Make sure the bundle "Display settings" is added to the Display UI under Manage > Administration > Your Display UI
