I am using SharePoint 2013 enterprise version. I have full crawled Search Service. I have also activated Search Engine Sitemap feature. I also successfully run the time job for the sitemap.

My website is https://www.website.com and two language variation https://www.website.com/en and https://www.website.com/ar

My issue is that where I will find the generated sitemap files.

he sitemap is located at the root level site collection. The url to access the sitemap is http://<WebApp>/sites/<SiteColl>/sitemap.xml. This file contains the location of actual sitemap and that is http://<WebApp>/sites/<SiteColl>/sitemap0.xml. The content of the sitemap file is like:enter image description here

  • Is it path based site collection or hnsc? Is it root level site collection in the web application?

Thank you @Waqas for your help, I found the issue my Search Service Application was not associated to my Web Application due to that sitemap was not generating. Once I have associated all starts working good.
