I need to create a search index for certain search results. I'd like to have a refiner on the first character of the title. Would be nice to have a separate managed property containing this first title character!

The question has been asked before but no proper answers where given.

So, is there a method to achieve this (apart from using a content enrichment service)?


There is only one index per SSA, so it's not about creating an index. It's about crafting a query that can return results based on the first character. Your request is the same as the queries we use for Last Name just use Title instead.


If you want sample code from a working project have a look at the Hyperfish Company Directory.
