managed metadata query managed property? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    im trying to run a query against a managed property for which the crawled property is a managed metadata type.

    i have set up the managed property and added my the crawled property with the id in the form ows_taxid_my_crawled property(text).

    i have ran a full crawl after the managed property was configured.

    when i run a search by using: MyManagedProperty:termname

    i do not get any results, this works successfully for a standard column as a crawled property, but not when the crawled property is a managed metadata.

    am i missing something?

  • Adding a managed property takes two steps,

    1- you run full crawl, this way your custom column shows up in crawl property.

    2- you create a managed property and map it to crawl property. make sure if your site column appear more than once with a slight different name in crawled property, just map both of them to same managed property.

    3- after step # 2, run a full crawl again.

    Now your search results should return based on managed property.
