I have a folder which is a bucket and I'm using the search functionality to get the results. By default I have 4 facets on the right column: Template, Language, Author and Date Range.

enter image description here I see on the path: /sitecore/system/Settings/Buckets/Facets that there are a few out of the box facets there. I have tried to create a new facet but it's not showing on the facets column.

enter image description here

Anyone know what I'm missing? I will need to add 3 other facets so looking for a solution to this.

    Can you make sure that field exists in the index (probably sitecore_master_index)? You can use luke (github.com/DmitryKey/luke) to see the contents of the index. Jul 17, 2017 at 19:18

The problem ended up being that the contenttype field was not getting indexed properly and the facets didn't work because of that. Also the facets will only show on the Search page facets if the facet does exist on the results
