I have added new file type (e.g. xyz) in Crawling section of Search administration of SharePoint 2013. I also added new Result type in SharePoint search site with condition: FileType Equal any off.. xyz

I can search documents that have xyz extension but this 'Result Type' refinement is not coming on SharePoint search site.

I want to refine my search results for custom file type by adding new Result type refinement label. Any solution for this problem?


Refiners are mapped to managed properties, as in SP 2010. in this post you can get examples of how you can modify and add new refiners for Sharepoint 2013 search.
