In SharePoint 2010 the FAST Query SSA has its own set of managed properties out of the box, which is independent of those in the SharePoint SSA. Customers often wonder how these properties are different. Here we examine all the out of the box properties of each and their differences.

SharePoint

To get a list of all managed properties for the SharePoint SSA, run the following script in a SharePoint PowerShell:

#$ssa=A reference to the SharePoint SSA

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchMetadataManagedProperty -SearchApplication $ssa | Select Name, Managedtype

This gives us the following list of 126 managed properties.

Differences

So now we have a handy reference for all the managed properties. You'll notice not only that the FAST list is shorter, but there are actually a lot of changes. FAST drops and introduces quite a few of them. For a better look at how they are different, here is a Diff of the two, showing the change as you move from the SharePoint SSA to the FAST Query SSA.

In SharePoint SSA but not FAST Query SSA
