Managed Properties RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im getting ready to implement a Cloud Search service application. I understand the on premise crawled properties propagate to SharePoint Online following the crawl of on premise content. What about the on premise custom managed properties? Do they propagate to the SharePoint Online search schema too?

    Thanks, ozsp

  • Hi ozsp,

    Do you mean the custom managed properties created on-premise will be copied to the cloud schema after a successful crawl?

    If so, then the custom managed properties created on-premise will not be copied to the cloud schema after a successful crawl.

  • yes you can get custom properties in SharePoint Online but for that you need to log into Office 365 with the service account your on-prem search service is using. In my case, logging into Office 365 Admin with domain\spsearch allowed me to see these missing properties. I could then create Managed Properties and then all users could use the data. That’s it! Your service account doesn’t need any licenses, just admin privileges.

  • I was asking if the managed properties that are created on premise propagate to the cloud schema following a crawl. I understand that the crawled properties do and I understand you can create managed properties from on premise crawled properties in the cloud. But do the custom managed properties created on premise propagate to the cloud schema after a successful crawl?

    Thanks, ozsp

  • Is there anyway to migrate them?

    Thanks, ozsp

  • No you can't import customized search configurations from SharePoint Server to SharePoint Online, or the other way around.
