Lesson 1: Configure Refiners and Faceted Navigation

Configure Refiners and Faceted Navigation

Configure Refiners and Faceted Navigation : When content is crawled by the Search engine, the metadata of the items that are crawled are represented as crawled properties. To include crawled properties in the search index, crawled properties have to be mapped to managed properties.

You can add refiners to a page to help users quickly browse to specific content. Refiners are based on managed properties from the search index. To use managed properties as refiners, the managed properties must be enabled as refiners, or crawled properties must be mapped to managed properties that are enabled as refiners.AX Retail.

Faceted navigation is the process of browsing for content by filtering on refiners that are tied to category pages. Faceted navigation lets you specify different refiners for category pages, even when the underlying page displaying the categories is the same. When a catalog is crawled, SharePoint Server 2013 automatically creates managed properties for all site columns that contain values.

Lesson Objectives

Learn how to:

  • Map a crawled property to a refinable managed property.
  • Enable a managed property as a refiner.
  • Configure refiners for faceted navigation.
  • Use JavaScript to display refiners in correct format.

Map a crawled property to a refinable managed property in SharePoint site collection administration

Site collection administrators can configure refiners because the search schema has many managed properties that are enabled as refiners by default. These managed properties are listed in the following table. Before site collection administrators can use these managed properties as refiners on their web pages, they must map the appropriate crawled property to the managed property that is enabled as a refiner. To make it easier to work with these properties when doing additional refiner configuration in Term Store Management, you can specify a user-friendly alias name for the managed property. Managed properties that are enabled as refiners by default.
