Default Unused Managed Properties in SharePoint Search Schema


In his blog post, we will talk about the default unused managed properties in SharePoint Online. Such as what type of managed properties are available, total number of various managed properties and also the most important, ID of the managed properties.

Default Unused Managed Properties

In SharePoint, a new site collection comes with different types of managed properties. Some of them are already used by the SharePoint and rest of the properties remain unused for us to reuse so that we don’t need to create a new managed property. We can also rename these unused managed properties using the alias as per our requirement.

See below table that provides an overview of such managed properties which are unused and available by default:

ID of the Managed Properties

When we need to provision the managed properties, especially using the XML schema, the most important part is the ID of the managed properties and as a SharePoint developer, I feel that this is the most critical information that must be handy. See following table for the Id of various managed properties:
