My Custom SharePoint Managed Property is not showing any values when I add it in the design template. The property has values for sure as I did check it using a custom WebPart that ) created using C#.

What things could I check?

Resolved Steps:-

  • Go to WebPart Edit it.
  • Go to Display Templates
  • Select Use a single template to display items and select the display template
  • Add your Managed Property in Hit-highlighted properties(JSON)

That's It

    It sounds like you did not define a Result Type for your Display Template. Your result will work, but must be configured on every search result web part. If you create a result type rule it will display every time. May 24, 2014 at 11:56

Have you used property sync.

Go to Site settings --> Search Result Types. Notice that a Property Sync alert is displayed.

Update: Adding the solution here

Ensure below:

  1. Managed properties are properly mapped to required crawled properties
  2. Do a full crawl
  3. Ensure that the display template (if edited by adding the new managed property) is uploaded and published
  4. Ensure that the "Update" link in the notification bar is clicked in Result types screen (better to check both at spweb and spsite levels)
  5. Clear browser cache

Perform a search now and see if the new MP is coming up. If still they are not showing up, use the Search SearchQueryToolv2.6 to query and find if the Search API is throwing them up. If all seems fine then do below

Final nail in the coffin would be restarting the SP Timer and SP Administration services. (This step made my changes reflect. Though for others, it worked at step 5)

  • @Gaurravs it sure is preferred to extend the answer, but in this case the link refers to sharepoint.stackexchange. The link basically can't become invalid unless this site becomes invalid.
