Query Suggestion Not Working - SharePoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I want to use "Auto Suggestion" in my fast search center.

    I understand that it's automatically configured feature, but for some reason it doesn't work for me. It means no query suggestion appear also the site is in use about several weeks.

    I tried to add a custom query suggestion with power shell, and it works well, this suggestion (and only this) appear in the search box web part.

    any ideas?

  • It seems like the "Prepare Query Suggestions" timer job never run, and it doesn't refer to any web application. is it OK?

    Maybe I have to define something?

    or maybe my farm\search configuration is missing something?

    Hope to get any idea.

  • Please try this in PowerShell:

    $searchapp = get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication [FAST Query APP Name]

    New-SpEnterpriseSearchLanguageResourcePhrase -SearchApplication $searchapp –Language EN-US –Type QuerySuggestionAlwaysSuggest –Name “query”

    Start-SPTimerJob –Identity “Prepare Query Suggestions”

    Mke sure that [FAST Query APP Name] is you query SA name and not the content SA name
