I have added a choice field (multiple choices) to the page library of a modern site (communication site). I plan to write topics of the pages. I would like this to be a searchable item in the modern search (or even in the classic search for the matter) but the pages (News posts) do not show up.

What do I need to do to make this column searchable? will it change something if I do it with a metadata term set?


You need to wait until the new crawled properties will appear in Search Schema, after this there should be Managed properties too, make sure, they are set as 'Searchable'.

  • what if after 1 hour still does not happen? if the word appears on the page under the form of the webpart Page details I do not understand why the search doesn't treat it as a word and search it anyway. I made the webparts searchable too – susan Jan 23 '19 at 13:36
