Is it possible to use Faceted Navigation for BCS external content type search results refinement?
I would like the search result page to show different refinement options based on different refinement categories. This TechNet article says I can use the Faceted Navigation to achive it.
However, as the BCS external content type items can't be tagged, I can't get the refinemable managed property to work in Faceted Navigation configuration. This is what I get:
Then I am curious how I can get it to work...
This is a good example, but it is actually using a SharePoint list which means the data is not too much.
What if there is a huge list of products? I don't think a SharePoint list can handle it. So I have to use BCS external content type.
The search refiner works on managed property. Have you created managed property for the crawled property corresponding to your external content type column?
