So this concerns SharePoint 2016 on Premise. I have MySite and searching from MySite triggers a people search. I want to search a department number. Example, in the people search, I enter...
That number matches that of a department that I am member of. If I execute that search, I get 2 or 3 results (none of which relates to my department number).
The crawled property in question is People:DepartmentNumber and this is linked to a custom managed property called "deptNum"
If in the search I execute...
This will give me 14 results, showing me each of the members in my department. This is a great result.
My question is why is it when I search 1347, I get 3 bad results, when I search deptNum:1347 I get 14 good results. I would like for users to just be able to type the department number and get results where the department number matches for the employees. I cannot expect the employees to know the managed properties names.
Some additional information on the managed property...
- Searchable: Yes
- Queryable: Yes
- Retrievable: Yes
- Refinable: Yes - active
Some additional information on the crawled property...
- Include in full-text index: Yes
