Im trying to facet by taxonomy fields but I see just the ID, not the name of the term, why?

I'm getting this:

3 (76)
4 (35)
176 (7)
167 (6)
177 (5)
168 (4)
5 (2)
163 (1)
7 (1)

and it should be

Casa (76)
Depto (35)
Duplex (7)

Any ideas?

  • What are your field settings in search api index? You should choose for example Brand » Name instead of Brand » Term ID. Brand = your field.

  • Thanks a lot for responding, Actually I went to the search api job index, there I selected the fields tab, I am displaying the occupation taxonomy terms with the facet widget, on the search api page here i am not sure where I have to choose the occupation, below there is one occupation name and occupation id, but both are unchecked, when I tried to check one occupation name, all the facets widgets went away.

  • I think you need to activate right facet widget in facet tab at search api index. Although you should check how to configure/use facet api. For example: webwash.net/tutorials/intro-search-api-part-2-faceted-search

you must select :

  List item label
 Translate entity label

This can happen if you delete terms that are associated with nodes.
