When I change the display name of a document library, this isn't reflected in the search results for documents, it still shows the original name.

    Hi @Steven Brewer ,

    Could you please tell me more about what "not reflect" means? Did it mean that the library name section of the file link in the search result has not been changed?

    Per my test, I renamed the library "Docs" to something else. When I searched again in my Search Center, the file link still kept ".../Docs/...." yet.

    Based on my experience, It may be a 24 hours time delay to take it into effect. So have you waited for 24 hours to check if the issue still exists?

    Please feel free to let me know if I misunderstood what you mean.

    The library has been renamed My Document Library, but Docs is still showing, which is what the URL is. The change was made over 48hrs ago and the library has been reindexed,
