I've setup UPS and have 7 users from AD. Search has performed a successful crawl and I can search via Everything and find user's my-site pages. When I perform a search by People it returns no results.

I've given permissions in the UPS application to Retrieve People Data for Search Crawlers for the access account used for the search application.

The Managed Metadata Service is running.

My Site Search scope for finding people has been set to People

I'm not sure why people search is not returning any results.

1 Answer 1

  1. Check Search Content Sources and make sure people is included
  2. Check the Scope and make sure people search is included sps3://...
  • I had our mysites added with http://.... Adding the sps3://.. and rerunning the crawl brought successfull results. Our production server doesn't have that address scoped though. Could you explain why that is necessary?

  • Not sure why this happened, but having the sps3://... gave results, but they were in double. So I removed it, leaving the http://... and ran the crawl and now it is working fine with no double results. So no I am back to the original setting I had which previously was not returning any results, but is working now.

  • Might be some cache issue. Normally we used to restart the search service to resolve issues. Dec 29, 2014 at 16:50
