SharePoint online search is showing the name of the person who modified the document rather then who created it when I use the CreatedBy managed property.

I have got two questions:

  1. how can I show only the created by value and not modified by in search?
  2. what does Office:4 mean as a crawled property?

enter image description here


Try using


to get the name of Created By Field

  • I see that DisplayAuthor is not mapped to any crawled properties in the Search schema. I will give it a try. – Burre Ifort Jun 6 '18 at 9:53
