Is it possible to customise the editor side search (right hand asset pane "catalog content" search box)? The problem I have is we've added special extension methods for the Product and index these via the CatalogContentClientConventions "IncludeField". This works well with our search implementations to discover the products via these extension methods, but editors need to find products by searching these values too - but that side panel search seems to only search by the episerver properties and doesn't consider these extra convention fields.
Have played around with a few options - for example, making these actual getter properties rather than the extension method which indexes them but the side panel search still doesn't work..
Any suggestions or explanations of if/how it is possible to change the editor asset pane search Find integration?

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
Nice. Glad to hear you made it works!
