Configuring Managed Properties in Search Service on Server

If you want to make your custom property searchable, you need to create a managed property for that custom property. I have added a new property ” Country ” to my User Profile Synchronization Service and mapped it to a property from AD. That works and the property gets properly imported into user’s profiles. I have even managed to successfully show it in search results; however I still can search for it specifically. This managed property acts as bridge between search and custom property.

This tracking has an impact on the relevancy of search results. For example, a search result that is often clicked by users will automatically be displayed higher up in the search results.
