I want to allow our users to search for metadata using keywords. For example "Name:Document1". This works for the standard columns but not for custom ones. What I mean is, "Name:Document1" works but "Customer:Bob" doesnt work.
Searching in google the whole day still doesnt give me an answer. I saw this post: Search on Enterprise keywords or Managed metadata which is almost the same as I want to do. The answer states that I should set up managed properties. I did this but it still doesnt work.
If I search for Bob without specifying the column it returns the right file. But it will also return all files that have "Bob" in any column. And I dont want this to happen.
Propertyname: CustomerOWSTEXT Alias: Customer Crawled Properties: ows_q_TEXT_Customer ows_Customer
I didnt need to create this property because it was already there. Therefore the Name. I read that ows_Customer should be the right one to chose but ows_q_TEXT_Customer is also there and I dont know where it came from.
The metadatacolumn are not managed metadata.
I've already reset the whole searchindex but it still doenst give me any results.
