I am trying to customize search result through display template. I am customizing "Item_CommonItem_Body.html" file to include custom managed property in the place of title I am trying to put custom managed property

I created one variable

var xxx_subject = ctx.CurrentItem.DocSubjectXXX;

using same in

var titleHtml = String.format('<a clicktype="{0}" id="{1}" style="cursor: pointer;" class="ms-srch-item-link" title="{3}" onfocus="{4}" {5}>{6}</a>',
                                      $htmlEncode(clickType), $htmlEncode(id + Srch.U.Ids.titleLink), $urlHtmlEncode(url), $htmlEncode(ctx.CurrentItem.Title), 
                                      showHoverPanelCallback, appAttribs, xxx_subject);

But I am always getting empty value. But at the same time when I try to see with SharePoint 2013 Search Query Tool v2.1 I get the data. enter image description here

So I don't know what I am doing mistake !!!

Did you add the managed property mapping in the display template? Look for the tag starting with <mso:ManagedPropertyMaping in the head of the template. You need to add a mapping to your managed property. It should be in the following format:

'<current item property name>':'<managed property name>'

Yours should be like this:

'DocSubjectXXX':'DocSubjectXXX' // Managed properties are comma separated.

You can find more details here.

  • You hit the correct nail But I already did it and still it is showing blank :(

  • Other than making sure the list/library has been crawled, and that the managed property has been mapped to a crawled property, I'm not sure.
