I'm working with SharePoint 2013 Enterprise. I've taken over the management of another SharePoint setup created by the person that had my job before me. I want to be able to query against the search api against a specific column, Alternate Name, for which I do not see any managed or crawled property created. I know the column is not a site column. That said, SharePoint shows that it has an internal name of
"Alternate_x0020_Name". I've done both an incremental and full crawl after ensuring that numerous list items have an Alternate Name value. I have searched both managed & crawled properties via the Search Schema on nearly every variation of
"Alternate_x0020_Name" I can think of, including searching on each singular part of the column name. Best I can see is that there simply isn't one. That said, if I try creating a new managed property and mapping it to a crawled property...well I could, but I do not see a field to map to.
The api I'm querying against follows a URL signature like:
http://sharepoint_server/_api/search/query?querytext='alt name value'&rowlimit=500
There are A LOT of columns that this particular api does not return as part of it's xml, though, I haven't figured out how to add more columns even by adding the
I've reviewed a number of links, but am still not sure what to make of my scenario. It doesn't seem like a managed property was auto-created and it doesn't seem like there's anything to map it to if I create a new one.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
