Can i do filtration of channel files extension with low search ?

I want to search filtration of document types with channel files such as: pdf, doc. ppt, jpeg, etc using low search.

Please let me know, if you have solution.


EE: 2.7.2

Low Search: 2.4.2

Channel Files: 5.2.8



Low Search doesn't have specific support for Channel Files (CF), so whether the two play nicely together depends on how CF stores its (searchable) data. If CF stores its data in the native channel_data table, then you can use the Field Search filter to search for substrings like .pdf etc. If it does not, then a custom filter/extension would be needed to add support for it.
