I would like to show a "News Article" list on my site collection homepage that queries customs lists on all sub sites and shows those that have a column yes/no value set to Yes. How can this be achieved with a Content Search Web Part?

I tried to add a managed property but I couldn't get it to work correctly and so I need some advice now. Can anyone help?


First create a search managed property against Yes/No column name.

Then update the content search web part 'query text' to filter the results by newly created search managed property.

Ex: ManagedProperty="Yes"

Hence the content search web part understands that it should pull only the results where the query matches.

  • I have the same problem and with me it does not work. When you build the string with the builder the YES is not within quotes, does it matter? I have tried all combinations, including contains etc, it does not work – susan Jul 30 '15 at 7:30
