No autocomplete suggestions


Using Find 9 I've added .StatisticsTrack() to my query.

My stats show that I've made 5 searches for "Test" and I've added one editorial suggestion "Testar autocomplete"

But when requesting this URL looking to get suggestion for "tes"


I get this in response

Hits: [ ], Status: "ok" }

Maybe there´s a minium number of hits required in order for a stats phrase to be added as a suggestion but should'nt I at least get the one editorial suggestion that I have

returned in the response?

Hi Peter,

This is an unfourtunate happening of a bugfix we did in a recent release. We are activly working on fixing this at the moment and it should be addressed in a upcoming release. Sorry for the problem this might have caused you.

Is there a date set for the release including a bugfix for this issue?

I have a slightly different issue regarding autocomplete:

After upgrading to Find 9.2 (from 8.10) autocomplete only returns suggestions based on queries registered after the upgrade. How can I use my "old" query-statistics with autocomplete after the upgrade? Will this be fixed as well in the upcoming release?

Has this been fixed? After upgrading EPiServer Find from to our autocomplete stopped working. We're now on but still having the issue. No results is returned even though I can see that we have a lot of search phrases indexed.

Hi Andreas,

Have you checked your javascript? We experienced the same issue when uppgrading from 8.10 to 9.6 and it was because of a change in the url to the statistics API. When we changed from 

$.get('/find/rest/autocomplete/get/' + query + '/5', function (data) {...});


$.get('/find_v2/_autocomplete?prefix=' + query + '&size=5', function (data) { ... });

the autocomplete started working again.

we have our own mvc api controller using the IStatisticsClient.Autocomplete method. However I get the same results (i.e. empty array) using the two url:s provided above. But it's interesting to hear that you've got it working, thanks.
