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.
Section: Configuring Managed Properties in Search Service on Server
Step-1: In SharePoint Search Service, select “Search Schema” option
Step-2: Create ‘New Managed Property’
Step-3: Following Managed Properties need to be created
– Property Name : Country
– Type : Text
– Searchable : Yes
– Queryable : Yes
– Retrievable : Yes
– Allow Multiple Values : No
– Refinable : Yes-active
– Sortable : No
– Safe : No
– Alias : —
– Token Normalization : Yes
– Complete Matching : No
– Include content from all crawled properties : Yes
Select ‘Add a Mapping’
Select “All Categories” -> Search for “Country” -> Select “Ok”
Property gets mapped as given in below screen shot:
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.
