I have a search query that returns list items. I would like to show the title of the list along with the properties of the item.

Is the list title a crawled or managed property? (The site title is mapped to "SiteTitle" but I cannot find anything for the list.)

1 Answer 1


The list title is available in the Title property of for example a view on the list (AllItems.aspx). My research so far show that the Title managed property of AllItems include both the site and list name separated by a -.

So, there is no way to get the list title as part of a list items managed properties today, without adding a column to the list containing the list name itself. It's a bit sad as SiteTitle is a managed property of list items. One would think ListTitle should be as well, but I have yet to discover any crawled property for this.

You can use ListID to use script to look it up, but a bit cumbersome indeed.

  • Could something be done with the ParentLink managed property ? It return the whole path of the list for each item... Nov 5, 2019 at 13:54
  • The path won't help for the title necessary, as a title can change at any time. Nov 5, 2019 at 20:12
