I am using SharePoint 2013 advance search webpart and i have created custom properties.search by using those properties not showing any data.

Steps which i follow is:-

  1. Created site column "DocTest" & add them in my document library.
  2. Add data in document library and put value in column "NewDocument"
  3. start Full crawl.
  4. Map there crawled property name "ows_q_TEXT_DocTest" & it is search,refine,retrieve is checked.
  5. Again full crawl, after that when i search using this property it is not working.

Please suggest.

  • " 4.Map there crawled property name "ows_q_TEXT_DocTest" & it is search,refine,retrieve is checked.." Do you mean you have created a managed property and mapped the crawled property ? Nov 12, 2014 at 16:26

you mapped wrong property, you should map ows_DocTest instead of ows_q_TEXT_DocTest
