Using either Search Query tool or modern search WebParts (SPFx), is it possible to filter results from a specific hub site or site in a hub site ?

In the search query tool view all properties dialog, I don't see any managed property that suggest this is possible.


Ok, quite simply actually.

Thanks to this issue, I found that the DepartmentId corresponds to the hub site.

So, this KQL filters on the hub site :

if from a web-part.

    You have double {{ and }} .... is it a typo ? – Steve B Jan 7 '20 at 13:28
  • I tried with double {{ and single {, but never got it to work. Can you confirm that if I run such KQL sentence, it will perform the search filtering results by DepartmentId={current site ID} ( in order to perform searches from the central hubsite itself ). thanks – Alberto S. Jan 7 '20 at 13:59
  • I use this syntax without issue. Can you describe what happens ? No result ? erro r? – Steve B Jan 7 '20 at 14:00

    I confirm u that another workaround is to just use DepartmentId:{{PageContext.hubSiteId}}, it works as well :) – Alberto S. Jan 8 '20 at 10:23
