I have installed Alfresco 5.2 Community and created a handful of custom categories. Document show up with their assigned categories, however when i pick the category-specific view no item is displayed, as shown below.
I am running solr6. No error shows up in either alfresco, share or solr6 logs.
Additionally, category filter does not appear in search results.
Which version of Alfresco Search Services are you using? (May be relevant for anyone wanting to reproduce / test this)
Did you create the document with the same locale as you are now using to find it? (There is a known issue where different locales in document creation vs. querying results in users not finding a document) - If you used the same browser for both operations and did not change the browser / content language via its options/preferences, then you have used the same locale.
Did you wait for the asynchronous indexing to complete? Listing by category is performing an index query and by default indexing may take ~15 seconds (more if system is under load) to index any changes. So if you have just applied the category and immediately searched, you would not find the document.
