Working with with result sources and sometimes I see the query like this:

{searchTerms?} (contentclass:sts_listitem OR IsDocument:True) **SPSiteUrl**:https://example {?owstaxidLSTopic:{Tag}}

And other times like this

{searchTerms?} (contentclass:sts_listitem OR IsDocument:True) **Site**:https://example {?owstaxidLSTopic:{Tag}}

I can't figure out what the difference is between the two. I found this blog on the introduction of SPSiteUrl, but it doesn't address queries specifically.

Can anyone point me to a better resources that explains the difference between the two?


All out of the box Search Crawled and Managed Properties are listed in this https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219630(v=office.15).aspx msdn article

To answer your question

  • SPSiteUrl is mapped to ows_SPSiteURL
  • Site is mapped to urn:schemas.microsoft.com:fulltextqueryinfo:sitename
  • Thank you that is helpful--for a bunch of things. So any idea what is different between those two properties? – Rothrock Jan 27 '15 at 18:34
  • I believe one is for SiteUrl and the other for Site Name. You can test this by changing the search query. – Amal Hashim Jan 27 '15 at 18:35
