For a crawled property, represented by a CrawledProperty object, to be available to the Enterprise Search experience, it must be mapped to a managed property, represented by a ManagedProperty object. For steps on how to do this, see How to: Map a Crawled Property to a Managed Property.

The Mapping object represents this mapping in the search schema for a Shared Service Provider. For more information, see Managing Metadata.
