I created a Site Column in my CT Hub that is a multi-value metadata field called ClientProjectType. When I create the Managed Property in Search, I set as a text value and select the multi-value property. After crawling, I add the field as a refiner. However, it shows values in this pattern: ID;Title|GUID.

I need the display to be Title. How do you resolve?

You probably have the wrong crawled property mapped. In my case the site column was named Loan Type and that created the following 4 crawled properties

  • Loan Type
  • Loan_x0020_Type
  • ows_Loan_x0020_Type
  • ows_taxId_Loan_x0020_Type

I selected ows_Loan_x0020_Type and did a full crawl and it worked.
