The public search searches only Authorized form of name. The following fields should also be searchable:
Other names, History, Places, and Functions, occupations and activities.
If you were searching for a specific creator then you might use words in either the authorized form of name or the other names so both are needed in the default search.
If you were researching a particular area (eg effect of war/economic policy etc on a region or city) then Places would pick up creators located there. Note – while there is a Places access point for archival descriptions it is more efficient to use Places against an authority record than to allocate a Place access point to each archival description.
If you were researching particular industries (eg cattle farming, glass manufacturing) or occupations (eg artists, astronomers) then searching on Functions, occupations and activities would be useful. We are also interested in attaching thesauruses to this field (extracts from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification and the National Library of Australia’s Occupations Thesaurus) to guide entries.
‘Internal structures or genealogy’ might also be usefully searched if it records hierarchies in an entity (eg names of office-bearers or divisions).
If possible, all other fields should be searchable for administrators, eg you might want to search for all ‘partial’ status records for workplanning or all persons under ‘type of entity’.

Just dealing with the general search, and covering both actors and repositories, I'd suggest indexing:
Other form of name is already indexed.

- Status changed from In progress to QA/Review
As per requested, two specific repository properties are indexed now (r12093): "holdings" and "collectingPolicies". I've also updated the docs: https://www.ica-atom.org/mediawiki/index.php?title=Search_fields&diff=12791&oldid=12696
Thanks Maggie and Tim for your help, it is much appreciated!

re: Authority Records Search
If you start your search from the Browse Persons/organizations sub-search box, then all the listed fields are indexed:
If you start your search from the Main Search Box, then NO, these fields in the authority record do not produce search result hits.
If the authority record is linked to an archival description, the name access point in the archival description will be provided as a search result hit on a name search in the main search box.
If you start your search from the Repository Browse sub-search box, the fields holdings and collecting policies are both indexed.
