SharePoint 2010 - Manager property is not available for Full Text Search


  • Hi,

    I had created a web part on MOSS 2007 which displays a organizational chart by searching (Full Text) the user profiles.

    To identify the subordinates of a user, I used to search for users with the particular user in Manager property. The query looked like this:


    SELECT AccountName, PreferredName, Manager, WorkEmail FROM scope()  WHERE ("SCOPE" = 'People') AND Manager = 'domain\parent_user'
    But, the same query does not run in SharePoint 2010 as Manager crawled property does not exists. 

    So, I created a new crawled property and mapped it to People:Manager(Text) now, the Manager property is always null.

    Even a full crawl after clearing the indexes also not helping. I tried the same with ows_Manager(Text) property also, still the same result.


    Can anyone help me in resolving this issue?

  • After struggling a little, I got it working!

    The new crawled property mapped to People:Manager(text) started giving values in search result by following the below steps:

    1. Check Indexed checkbox in Manager User Profile property edit page
    2. Reset crawl index
    3. Full crawl again
