Searching Blogs on SharePoint Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to use a Content Search Webpart to search SharePoint Blog posts based on their category. I've set up a Managed Property RefinableString00 - see below - but searching this brings back no results. Is it possible to search on Blog Category in SharePoint Online?


    Best wishes, Colin

  • Hi Colin,

    Did you map the crawled property of the Category column in Posts list to the managed property RefinableString00?

    The crawled property of the Category column in Posts list in ows_PostCategory.

    To be able to search the posts based on the Category column, we need to map the crawled property of the Category column in the Posts list to the managed property that you want to be used.

    Please edit the managed property RefinableString00 and then click Add a Mapping button to map to the crawled property ows_PostCategory.

    After that you need to wait for the search to do a full crawl and then you will be able to search the Posts based on Category with this managed property RefinableString00.

    Thanks,

    Victoria
