Index VPP files


Im trying to index the files in VPP folder by placing the below code in Application_Start event of Global.asax.cs file:

FileIndexer.Instance.Conventions.ShouldIndexVPPConvention = new VisibleInFilemanagerVPPIndexingConvention();

However, I get - "the type or namespace name 'VisibleInFilemanagerVPPIndexingConvention' could not be found" error. I have added the namespaces - EPiServer.Find and EPiServer.Find.Cms namepaces in Global.asax.cs. Kindly let me know what else am I missing. Thanks.

It 's in the: EPiServer.Find.Cms.Conventions-namespace.

Even after adding EPiServer.Find.Cms.Conventions namespace, I'm getting the same error.

In the Object Browser of EPiServer.Find.CMS (double click on the referenced dll in VS). Open the EPiServer.Find.Cms.Conventions-namespace and make sure that VisibleInFilemanagerVPPIndexingConvention is missing. If so please post the EPiserver.Find-version you are using and download the latest one from

Its working now. It was my fault, as I had typed it : FileIndexer.Instance.Conventions.ShouldIndexVPPConvention = new VisibleInFileManagerVPPIndexingConvention(), instead of : FileIndexer.Instance.Conventions.ShouldIndexVPPConvention = new VisibleInFilemanagerVPPIndexingConvention(). And we also need to use EPiServer.Find.Cms.Conventions-namespace. Thanks for your suggestions.
