I have been trying whole day to configure search, set up the search service application, did a full crawl, had lots of internal errors and after a long day, did an iisreset and finally it was working. Hurray.
Now, my problem is that I want to show managed metadata as search refiners, but none are showing.
I found this post Managed metadata columns as search refiners but cannot find a tutorial on how to do it.
Can anyone help me?
[Update] Did the steps described in the first answer, but now came across a new problem. I can see the "Managed Metadata Columns" in the Filter, changed it to my column but still they are not appearing in the Search Refinement Panel.
<Category Title="TopicMM" Description="Managed metadata of the documents" Type="Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.WebControls.TaxonomyFilterGenerator" MetadataThreshold="3" NumberOfFiltersToDisplay="3" MaxNumberOfFilters="20" ShowMoreLink="True" MappedProperty="ows_MetadataFacetInfo" MoreLinkText="show more" LessLinkText="show fewer" />
[Update2] Silly of me. I forgot to uncheck the Default Configuration checkbox. Hope this helps others though.
