I am in a SharePoint online environment.
I have created a site column as part of a content type. That content type is assigned to a document library. The site column has been added as a refinement. When I search and click on one of the refinement values from this site column, everything works as expected. So far, so good.
Now, when I simply try to search for a value in the site column, I get no results. If I search by
columnname:value, I get results. In order to create the refinement, I added the site column as a mapping the the
RefinableString01 managed property. When I edit the
RefinableString01 managed property, the searchable checkbox is disabled.
I have also tried creating a new managed property mapped to this site column with the searchable checkbox checked. However, I still cannot search for documents by any value in the site column.
