Crawl Properties not available to be mapped


Workplace Builder


Site Directory

Product Version

PH 5.1


Crawled properties listed below are not available to be mapped:
GimmalExcludeFromDirectory - ows_GimmalExcludeFromDirectory
RefinableString100 - ows_q_CHCS_Status
RefinableString101 - ows_q_CHCS_Priority
RefinableString102 - ows_SiteType
RefinableDate19 - ows_DueDate
AllDayEvent - ows_fAllDayEvent

Root Cause

 The ows_GimmalExcludeFromDirectory and ows_SiteType are from the Site Directory and Willow Site Directory content types.  They would not be present until after Site Directory is configured and a full crawl run.
The other 4 properties are not present in new SharePoint environments.  SharePoint doesn’t create these properties until the crawler finds them.  ows_q_CHCS_Status,ows_q_CHCS_Priority, and ows_DueDate are created when a task with a due date is crawled. ows_fAllDayEvent is created when a full day calendar event is crawled. 


To create the mapping, create a task list and calendar and populate them with values in the respective columns.  The above 4 properties will be created on the next full crawl.

    This article worked for me.

    Do you recommend waiting to turn Continuous Crawling on until after these crawled properties have been created?
