I recently created a search refiner for a multiple choice column called MyChoice. For that, i configured the managed property refinable and allowing multiple values.

I did a full crawl and get this:

Search Refiner

I would expect to hav these two choices separately like this

  • Mychoice 1
  • MyChoice 2

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any hints!

  • I'll try. Thanks for the hint. It seems like the default managed property maps to the other crawled property... KR

Make sure to map the "ows_MyChoice" value to your managed property and select Multi-value Refinement Item in the refinement options for that refiner.
