EPiServer CMS 12 Search & Navigation link in global menu CMS



We upgraded project from CMS 11.20 to 12.8 and installed all required packages for EPiServer Search & Navigation EPiServer.Find (14.1) EPiServer.Find.CMS(14.1). But link for Search & Navigation is not there in global menu of CMS. We have the configuration in Startup.cs file ( services.AddFind();) for Find configuration and added index name and URL in appsettings.json file.

 "EPiServer": {
    "Find": {
      "ServiceUrl": "",
      "DefaultIndex": "deepapuranik_findindex092022"

Please help what steps we are missing related to Search & Navigation.

The steps you have followed do seem correct, I have the same version of Optimizely Installed although running version 14.0.4 of Search And Navigation

Have you checked your modules folder to ensure the package has been installed correctly and their are not conflicts with previous versions ?

Using version 14.0.4 worked for Search and Navigation. As we have .Net 5 project.

Thank you for the help.

Hi Deepa

There is a known issue that had been reported here

I would highly suggest you planning to upgrade to .NET 6 as .NET 5 has reached the end of support (10/05/2022)
