I have recently taken over a historical SharePoint site and need to add an additional item to a customised search results page, but the value I added is not showing. I have done the following:
I added a new ‘regular’ column to a list that already contains values that are being crawled and added to the search results. The column I added to the list is not a Site column.
I added a record to populate this new column within the list, and then performed a full crawl.
The added column appeared within the Crawled property results, but as this was not a site column, it did not automatically generate a Managed property.
I made a new managed property and connected the newly found crawled property to this.
I uploaded the updated html file and re-ran the search, but the newly added property is not showing.
The existing managed properties follow the standard naming convention, but I do not know if these were site columns that were automatically generated or not. The modified list shows no ‘Catalogue settings’ option under the ‘General Settings’ header of the ‘List Settings’. I expected this to be there. There does not appear to be a catalogue for this list, and I am not sure why the other values are showing but my newly added one is not.
I have not done anything other than the steps mentioned above, so please do not assume anything else has been setup, and this looks different from what I have seen before (no catalogue). Am I missing something?
