Is there a way to get search hits in

  • HitHighlightedSummary
  • HitHighlightedProperties

on people search using REST?


I only get empty properties..

<d:element m:type="SP.KeyValue">
   <d:Value m:null="true"/><d:ValueType>Null</d:ValueType>

<d:element m:type="SP.KeyValue">

I am having the same problem, if I enter no searchproperty I have HitHighlightedSummary but if I define it with the summary it returns null. Have you solved it?

I found it. Apparently you should seperate them;

SelectProperties: ['ListItemID', 'Title', 'Path', 'Description', 'SPWebUrl', 'contentClass', 'IsContainer', 'PictureThumbnailURL', 'HitHighlightedSummary'],

this was the old one

SelectProperties: ['ListItemID, Title, Path, Description, SPWebUrl, contentClass, IsContainer, PictureThumbnailURL, HitHighlightedSummary'],

Also this query works for me:
