Overview:  Refiners are a powerful way of drilling into your search result data.  This post aims to look at configuring the search refiner web part.  Any Managed Property can be marked as a refiner and then used on the Refinement Web Part.

Steps to setup a refinement panel:
1.> Add the "Refinement" search web part to your search page.
2.> Edit the Web part and under the "Choose Refiners" button select the appropriate Refiners.

3.> Add custom managed properties as shown below, mark the managed property as "refineable" and it will show up in the "available Refiners" screen.

4.> Add your custom "Available Refiners"
5.> Save and publish the web part and check the refiners are working.
