I'm working with Sitecore 8.1. I have <indexAllFields>true</indexAllFields> in the <documentOptions> node of the DefaultIndexConfiguration.config file. When I open the index up in Luke and navigate to a document that I expect certain fields for, those fields are not present. It seems that only some base Sitecore fields are being stored, none of the template-specific ones.

I tried adding <indexAllFields>true</indexAllFields> to the root of <defaultLuceneIndexConfiguration> as well, as I know that's the location it was in for previous versions of Sitecore. That didn't help either.

I'm specifically looking in sitecore_master_index right now.

The fields are being indexed, but they are not all marked as storageType="YES" in the default Lucene configuration. This means that the fields will be tokenized in the index, but not stored, or visible in Luke. Note that they are still searchable even tho they are not stored.

If you want to be able to see the values in Luke, you will need to change the storageType to "YES" in the raw:AddFieldByFieldTypeName section.

Example below:

  <fieldTypes hint="raw:AddFieldByFieldTypeName">
    <fieldType fieldTypeName="attachment" storageType="YES" indexType="TOKENIZED" vectorType="NO" boost="1f" type="System.String"   settingType="Sitecore.ContentSearch.LuceneProvider.LuceneSearchFieldConfiguration, Sitecore.ContentSearch.LuceneProvider" />
     <!-- others removed for brevity -->

Note: Doing this will dramatically increase the size of your index and could potentially affect performance.
