I have a query rule that triggers the display of a result block. I have a couple custom managed properties I'd like to display in the result block, but they always show up empty in my display template.
I followed Bella's wonderful entry and was able to get the custom managed properties to show in ranked search results, but if I use the exact same item template inside a result block, the values are empty.
I've included my fields in the ManagedPropertyMapping field of my item template, and I have confirmed that the managed properties have been created successfully, as I can see their values when hitting the search API directly.
I have a hunch that for some reason, when using an item template inside a result block, that it does't pay attention to the custom properties in the ManagedPropertyMapping tag.
So finally my question.... Has anyone been able to display a custom managed property inside a result block?
