  • Hello Sirii,

    meta.collection can only be used when writing FQL, as it's an interal FAST property and not a managed property. I assume you are trying to use it from the Search Center, and that will not work as the queries are executing using the Keyword Query Syntax (KQL).

  • I suppose a work-around for Sirii could be what you (Mikael) posted on your blog (, i.e. creating a scope targeting the meta.collection property.
