Method for OnPremise SharePoint

In this section you can find a semi-automated method for Search Schema Configuration on an OnPremise SharePoint

You can configure searching in the Tags column with a PowerShell script. You have to use this script on your SharePoint 2013 server. This script can be used to restore default settings as well. 

Prerequisites for Setting Up PowerSearch

  • A SharePoint admin account
  • Installed SharePoint 2013 Management Shell 
  • The file 'on-premise.ps1'

Steps to Follow to Set Up PowerSearch

  1. Place the file 'on-premise.ps1' on server, preferably to 'C:\Install\PowerTaggingDeploy\ SetupSearchSchema\'
  2. Run SharePoint 2013 Management Shell as admin
  3. Enter 'cd C:\Install\PowerTaggingDeploy\ SetupSearchSchema\' in the command prompt.
  4. Enter 'on-premise.ps1'.
  5. Confirm with 'Y'.
  6. You will get a success message 'ManagedProperty Tags2 was mapped to CrawledProperty ows_Tags'.

  2. Click on Manage service applications.
  3. Select Search Service Application from the list and click Administrators in the ribbon, at the top of the page.
