    The UsageCategory page property determines where your page ends up in Search

    If you leave the UsageCategory out, it won't show up in Search

    Maybe your application area is not enabled? The only other thing I can think of would be permissions.

    when testing with different role center it works, only doesnt work on a certain one.
    could you clarify what you mean by "application area is not enabled"? thank you

    The ApplicationArea can be used to control which pieces of the UI is visible to the user. The biggest example is the difference between 'Essential' and 'Premium' experience level. In Essential, you don't see manufacturing and service related things for instance, and that is managed through the ApplicationArea.

    Most of the time I simply use the ApplicationArea 'All' and then it should always be visible, but it could be possible that you have it set to a value that is not enabled. Search for ApplicationArea to learn more.

    oh yeah i have set that to all as well?

    You said you filled them in, not what their values are, so I am just guessing about that. You know I'm trying to help you here. I even created a little app for you so I can take a screenshot for you.

    I can't reproduce this, because the things I'm explaining are all working for me. Like I said before the only other thing I can think of is some sort of permissions issue.

    ApplicationArea = 'All'
    UsageCategory = lists
