We have FAST Search 2010 in use.

There is the managed property ModifiedBy which tells who has modified an element. This managed property equals to the name of the Person, e.g. Doe, Jon.

I want to get the account name and/or the email address of the person who has last modified the element.

I have created managed properties who are each mapped to one of the following crawled properties. None of them return the email or the account name.

I have turned on the FFDumper and looked into the dump files. They do not contain any email adresses or account names.

Which crawled property contains the email address or the account name of the last modifier?

If there is none then I have to build such a crawled property by myself. The Modified By column's raw value in a list item looks like <user id>;#<name of person>. My idea is to build a new custom item processor which emits a new crawled property that contains the account name. For that the custom item processor needs the raw data and with the help of the SharePoint API the SPUser object with the right ID can be fetched.

Since the Modified By column's internal name is editor I have looked for a crawled property named ows_editor but there isn't any. The crawled property editor mentioned above is empty.

Which of the crawled properties contains the raw data of the Modified By column?
