Managed Metadata property not visible in search api/ display template RRS feed

  • Question

  • Custom metadata properties are not showing up values in the hover template in search result , we have added custom metadata property values in both the item and hover template in the mapping property.

    We have custom metadata properties linked to crawled site columns , All the metadata properties have proper data as they are also used in refiners and are showing proper data

    We have gone through msdn , Stevemann articles for reference 

    Only catch we are able to see not able to see the update link in the result type ( under site collection administration)


    Checked the updated template it is not breaking any where it is showing all default properties properly , Latest CU have been updated on the server , still not able to locate the issue 

    Any suggestion would be of great help , thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    It's a common issue that your custom properties won't display. The way to get this to work is as follows:

    1. Create your display template with the properties
    2. Create a new Result Type matching the content with the metadata, and pick your custom display template for this Result Type.
    3. Make sure you select "optimize for frequent use"

    Blogged it here as well: http://techmikael.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-100-way-of-getting-your-custom.html
