Search Alerts with refiners SharePoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    i have created a weppart-page with a search result webpart, a search-box and a refinement webpart. The search works great  i can refine my search results with the refinement webpart and i can search with the search-box.


    1. If i am searching with the search-box and then creating an alert  i get a notification for creating this alert. Now, if i create a list-item with a keyword that was in my search-box i get an alert e-mail that a new item was created. This works perfect.

    Problem: Creating Alerts for search results with refiners

    2. If i refine a search and then create an alert, i dont receive an alert when i add a list-item with the same refiner-value.

    I guess that has something to do with the search-query !?

    PLS HELP 

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    As per my knowledge, search alert triggered daily/weekly based on your setting.

    How long did you wait for since you creating the alert?

    Have you tried to crawl the content source after you creating/updating the items?

  • Hi,

    thank you, iam waiting if you find out something. Its a little bit weird that the refiner isnt in the search query text if you create an alert.

  • Hi,

    Sorry for response late, I tested in default search page which includes refiner by default, and I could get daily alert summary based on my test.

    So could you provide your detail test scenario so I could confirm again?

    Best Regards,
