Manage mapping crawled to managed properties (FAST Search Lotus Notes connector)

FAST Search Server 2010

Published: May 12, 2010

Once you have run the FAST Search Lotus Notes content connector, crawled content will show up in the crawled properties in the Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Central Administration. In order to make this content searchable, you must map the crawled properties to managed properties. A number of properties are mapped by default. If you want to add an additional crawled property to a managed property, you must either map it to an existing Managed Property or create a new Managed Property for the crawled property you want to create a mapping for.

Predefined crawled properties

The FAST Search Lotus Notes connector submits a predefined set of crawled properties in the “Lotus Notes” category to the content index. The following table lists these, and their default mapping to managed properties if applicable.

Crawled property Type Managed property Description

subject

Text

title

Typically the title of a note. There may be databases that do not have a “subject” property, but most do.

lastmodified

Datetime

datetime

The time that this note was last modified.

dbtitle

Text

None

The title of the Lotus Notes database where the document resides.

lastaccessed

Text

None

The time that this note was last accessed.

size

Integer

size

The size in bytes of the note.

created

Datetime

created

The time that the document was created.

dbtemplate

Text

None

The database template used to create the database where the document resides.

dbpath

Text

None

The file path (on the Domino server) to the database where the document resides

dbcategories

Text

None

The categories under which the database (where the document resides) appears in the Database Library

docpath

Text

None

A unique hierarchical string representing the document ID of a document. The string is hierarchical because Lotus Notes databases can be nested arbitrarily deep.

uid

Text

None

The universal ID, which uniquely identifies a document across all replicas of a database.

notesurl

Text

None

The Domino URL to the document. Typically used to open the document from the Lotus Notes client.

form

Text

None

The form used to create the database where the document resides.

database

Text

None

The file name of the database where the document resides.

dbserver

Text

None

The name of the Domino server where the document resides.

nestinglevel

Integer

None

Identifies the nesting level of the document. For example, if the document is in a database that is attached to a note in a different database, the nestinglevel value would be 2.

viewurl

Text

None

The URL to the database view that this document belongs to. If no view was specified in the configuration, the default view of the database is used.

You may choose to map one or more of the crawled properties from this table to managed properties.

One mapping that does not appear in the predefined mapping table and that you should consider adding is the crawled property dbtitle. Map this property to the managed property sitename to improve the search experience when searching Lotus Notes content. Mapping dbtitle to sitename will populate the sitename refiner in the search front-end with Lotus Notes database title for all Lotus Notes documents.

How to map crawled to managed properties

To open the Managed Properties page:

  1. On the Central Administration page, select General Applications Settings.

  2. On the General Application Settings page, under Search, select Farm Search Administration.

  3. Select Search Service Application, and select your Query Search Service Application (for example, fastsearchquery).

  4. Select FAST Search Administration from the menu on the left.

  5. On the FAST Search Administration page, under Property Management, click Managed Properties.

To add a crawled property to a managed property:

  1. On the Managed Properties page, click Crawled Properties Categories.

  2. On the Crawled Property Categories page, find the Lotus Notes category and click it.

  3. On the Crawled properties page, click the crawled property name that you want to edit.

  4. On the Edit Crawled Property page, in the Mappings to managed properties section, click Add Mapping.

  5. In the Select managed properties to map to dialog box, configure the settings. In the Available managed properties list, search for or select a managed property, and then click Add. Repeat if you want to add more managed properties to the same crawled property. Click OK.

  6. On the Edit Crawled Property page, if you want to include values for the crawled property in the search index, select the Include values for this property in the search index check box.

    Select the check box to enable querying against the values of this crawled property. This will place these values in the search index. For example, if the crawled property is "author," simple queries such as "Smith" will return both items that contain the word "Smith" and items whose author property is "Smith." When unchecked, users will have to query against the managed property "author:Smith" to find the same items. Including unnecessary properties may have a negative effect on search relevance and performance.

  7. Click OK.

  8. Rerun the FAST Search Lotus Notes content connector for the changes to take effect.

    Tip Tip:

    Incremental crawls will not pick up the new mapping. In order to activate the new mapping, it is necessary to run a full crawl.
