FAST Search not including child search results RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,


    I'm currently doing a project, but can't seem to get the FAST Search to include search results containing the child terms, when searching on a parent term from the term store. For instance, when I have a term store with the term "America" and beneath that the states, I would only get the results for America, and not the results where the term is a state.

    Is this correct behavior, or do I have something wrong in the configuration?


    Kind regards,

  • Hi,

    In order to get hits for all the values you have to check off "Display the entire path to the term in the field" on the managed metadata column setting. This will ensure you get the full hierarchy and all child terms will include the parent values as well.


    Europe -> Norway

    If you tag an item with "Norway", Europe will be included, so that a search on Europe will include Norway as well.
