Using Keywords in People Search

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#

I am trying to add keywords and synonyms for Job Titles for my people search. For example when Some one searches for VP I was it to look for Vice President and CFO would be chief financial officer and so on.

I have tried adding the Keyword Phrase of "Vice President" and the synonym of VP and that does not work , and I have tried it in the reverse of this. Is there something I am missing?

How to display a count of search results with keywords in a label?


Sorry for a basic post here; I am very new to VB!

I am currently building a search page, which includes a textbox and two drop-down lists, a search button, and a datagrid. If results are found and displayed, I would like a label to display:

(e.g.) "24 results found for 'blue sky clouds' "

...where the integer represents the results count, and the keywords and/or drop-down list selections are included in the string.

If no results are found I would like the label to display:

(e.g.) "No results were found that match your selection. Please try again"

I would also like the label to be invisible until a search occurs.

Thanks in advance!

Advanced People Search

Hi All, I'm having a problem with the Advanced People seach webpart, one of the fields under 'Search Options' is Memberships. I have updated it inline with this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/935196, which now brings back results when searching by using a distribution list name, but I'm still getting no results when searching by a Site Name (as displayed under in the "Memberships" webpart on a mysite) Also is there a way to change the word "Memberships" in the webpart, to something like "Site Memberships"

Permissions for Search Keywords and Best Bets

Do you know if it is possible for a user, which is not a Site Collection Administrator, to access "Site Settings / Search Keywords" admin page?Maybe by creating a new Permission Level or......   The reason for this, is that I have editors which I do not want to upgrade to Site Collection Admintrators, but they need to create Search Keywords and Best Bets.

MySite Turned off and People search does not work.

Hi everyone, as one of the requirements for our sharepoint server we have turned the "Mysite" functionality off.When I try to click on a resault of a people search to view someone's profile I get a 404 error. Obviously this is due to turning off Mysite.My question is, is this a bug in SharePoint? Why would turning off MySite not redirect the profile to Userdisp.aspx instead of Person.aspx (releated to mysite)??What I am interested in knowing is has anyone been able to edit the people resault page and redirect the profile information to userdisp.aspx instead of person.aspx?Thanks for any help!

People Search Results - Where do property/headings in the core results web part come from?

Hi there, I'm hoping this will be a nice simple thing to fix! We're running SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, using the Enterprise Search. In my User Profiles Service Application, I changed the display name of one of the User Properties. It it the SPS-Responsibility property. The out of the box display name is Ask Me About. The only issue is that in the people search results, the SPS-Responsibilty display name still shows as Ask Me About, not my new display name. This link shows this in a screenshot  I've tried various things such as resetting the index, running full crawls again etc. Could anyone let me know where this text is coming from? Thanks! Al

People search in MOSS 2007




I don’t know much about the search settings in SharePoint. I have a requirement like I want to enable the people search for one of the SharePoint site which was created by someone else.


I know that people search will be activated by default if we choose the site template as collaboration portal, but in this case I am not sure about the template they used to create. By the way is there any way to find out which site template they used to create the site; that is apart.


What are the settings required to enable the people search in MOSS 2007.  

Why Search Option is not working correctly in the People Search Box?


I have SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise based intra.
I have added People search box.

Why I click the Search Options, it opens the fields top of the webpart below the search box.
So basically 2 webpart looks like they are top of each others.


How to search people?


SharePoint 2010 offers a search button "Find People", but when I am trying to find people its not picking up anyone on the same site.

Is there any solution for this?

Can we pull out all names with a single search (like other applications as facebook, when we do not enter anything and hit search button, it gives out all the names), is there any work around?


Why is SharePoint people search returning the same results as all sites search?


I've been having issues with the people search in that it doesn't return any results and the scope is 0.

I deleted the scope and recreated it adding the rule contentclass = urn:content-class:SPSPeople with behaviour : require but now when i search for people it seems to search everything not just people profiles. Please can someone tell me what I have done wrong when I recreated the scope? The scope still cant crawl the profiles but I'd like to at least get back to where i was before!!


Issue with People Search Box - Search Options Toggle teaser not loading correctly



I am experiencing an issue with the People Search Box Web Part.

When I click search options on the "People Search" web part that I have added to my Staff Portal front page it doesn't seem to render correctly. The toggle teaser tries to expand out the options but I can see the content that exists below it.

After this clicking on one of the list web parts I have and selecting the next page pf the list causes the page to fully re-render and I can see the "Search option" toggle teaser properly.

I'm wondering if this is behaviour that anyone else has seen when configuring their People Search?

I know I can turn the Search options off but this seems like a bit of a cheat and I'd rather have the functionality working properly - especially if this is a symptom of something more radically incorrect with how I have configured my front page.

Thanks in Advance


People Picker fails to search or resolve and return an error message.



I got an error while trying to access the people picker from some specific locations. I'm experiencing those problems ONLY in the cental administration and also there, just on a few places. For example if I try to change the authorization settings of any service application there is a different people picker pop up than, for example, if I want to change the admins of any service application. Any other people picker window outside the central administration works for me.

So it seems to me, that there are two different types of people picker windows. The one which is not working for me also appears in the metadata service application which is the reason I can't use this service as I'm not able to define an owner of a keyset.

In the error log I found the following message: "Ausnahme im Forderungsanbieter 'Alle Benutzer' beim Aufruf von 'SPClaimProvider.FillHierarchy()': Der Objektverweis wurde nicht auf eine Objektinstanz festgelegt." It basically says: An exception occurred in 'all users' claim provider when calling 'SPClaimProvider.FillHierarchy()': The object reference was not set on a object instance. This is event-id 8307 which you can find here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff535778.aspx

Search for people in Sharpoint Server 2003 from Sharepoint Server 2010.


Anyone know how to setup so that Sharepoint 2010 crawls Sharepoint 2003 people?

We have tested adding a new content source called People with a content source type of sharepoint and used sps://site.domain.com/site$$$people as the start address.

When trying to SAVE/OK we get the following error.

The start address "sps://site.domain.com/site$$$people" is not valid for this content source type.
