Is it possible to show a folder child count in search results? The field is called folderchildcount.

I am using search against document sets and would like to show this column in the results?

I have tried defining the column and adding the xsl but I am getting an error that this field is not available.



Assuming you are using SharePoint 2010, did you add the field to the list of columns on the Core Search Web Part?

The check list should be this:

  • Is it a Managed Property? If not Fix that and do a full crawl.
  • Is it defined as a column on the web part? If not add it to the XML.
  • Are you referencing it in lowercase by name in the XSL? if not fix that.
  • Do your fields actually have values? If not ensure you have good test data.
  • I have added <Column Name="FolderChildCount" /> to the fetched properties. In addition I added <xsl:value-of select="folderchildcount" /> to the xsl. When refreshing the search results I get error that field does not belong and there is error. This is not a custom field but a out of the box field from sharepoint. In terms of managed properties ows_FolderChildCount(Text) is not currently mapped. Should it be mapped? – David Sep 3 '13 at 13:51
  • I also added ows_ItemChildCount mapped to testcount and included testcount in the columns and testcount in the xsl but i am not seeing any results. Ideas? – David Sep 3 '13 at 17:49
  • Did you perform a full crawl after managing the property? – Matthew McDermott Sep 4 '13 at 9:35
  • Yes, this resolved the issue after doing full crawl...ty – David Sep 5 '13 at 14:07
  • Great, any cahnges made to Managed Props have to have a full crawl before they will take effect. – Matthew McDermott Sep 7 '13 at 21:51
