  • Hello,

    We are using SharePoint 2013 Community site and the hashtags that end users use do not appear in search refiners. How can we make hashtags appear in Search refiners?

    Please help

  • Hi,

    According to your description, my understanding is that you want to add hashtags to search refiners.

    To display tags to the search refiners, we need to map the refinable hashtags managed property to refinement panel.

    Here are some detailed articles for your reference:

    Thanks

    Best Regards

  • Hello,

    Thank you for the reply. Currently when I look at the search schema, I see two managed properties as attached in the image. Both of these managed properties are by default not "Refinable".  Which of these properties must be refinable to make social hashtags as search refiners?

  • Hi,

    You need to use "owstaxIdMetadataAllTagsInfo" managed property for hashtags.

  • Hello Jerry,

    I tried all the above Managed Properties but none of them show results from Community sites. So for eg: if I used a hashtag in one of the Community sites' discussion, then only results from Newsfeed posts appear and any other conversations in community sites ignore it.

  • Hi,

    If the hashtag  only show the activity from the discussion nor the whole community site, I suggest you can full crawl the data in search service application to test if  it works.

    Thanks

    Best Regards
