I have created a managed property in Central Admin which is mapped to Start Date crawled property. These are the settings which I have set on my managed property:

  1. Type: Date and Time
  2. Queryable: true
  3. Retrievable: true
  4. Refinable: true
  5. Sortable: true
  6. Mapped crawled Property: ows_q_DATE_StartDate

There is data in the lists, but the managed property does not return any values back. It is always empty.

  • Make sure you have performed a Full Crawl on the content source(s) that contain(s) the new managed property (see MSDN Manage search schema > To add a managed property).

  • I have performed a full crawl of the content source, but I am not getting anything for this particular managed property. I have mapped it to the "Start time" field in Calendar list Commented Feb 15, 2016 at 13:42
