SharePoint 2013 Crawled property names

The names of SharePoint crawled properties are not always easily read or understood.  Here are few tips that helped me out a lot once I learned them:

  • ​List Columns = ows_ColumnName
  • Site Columns = ows_q_<4 letter code that maps to the data type>_Column Name
  • Managed Metadata = ows_taxId_ColumnName
  • HTML or Multiline Text = ows_r_<4 letter code that maps to the data type>_Column Name
