All Categories in Search Service Application shows count zero. Due to this Managed Property is not able to create from Crawled Properties using PowerShell, as here in this case SharePoint category has zero count.

$category = "SharePoint"
#Get the Search Service Application
$searchapp = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication

#Get the Search Service Application
$cat = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchMetadataCategory –SearchApplication $searchapp –Identity $category

enter image description here

Any work around or idea ?


See this thread and the MSFT support response. I tested the powershell and it does then allow you to script managed properties, but doesn't resolve this screen's 0's
