UnifiedSearchHit, i want more details about my hits


When implementing a global search using Unified search i get a list of UnifiedSearchHit as a searchresult. Most of the properties in UnifiedSearchHit is useful to me but i would like to add a few more.

I know i can customize the data in the UnifiedSearchHit by using a Custom projection or by giving the different types different implementations of ISearchContentproperties

Is it possible to achive this somehow?

As far as I know you can only hi-jack and use the properties already in place on UnifiedSearchHit. Among those you have some dictionary type properties that you can use to append stuff to as well.

I think the smoothest way is to add extension methods with the same name.

I found a way to access the original pagetype using the OriginalObjectGetter property on UnifiedSearchHit.

public static int? GetIntranetId(this UnifiedSearchHit hit)
            if(hit.OriginalObjectGetter != null)
                var original = hit.OriginalObjectGetter.Invoke() as SitePageData;
                if (original != null)
                    return original.SearchIntranetId;
            return null;

I guess this might work.

Hi, is there a way to do this yet?

I've indexed a bunch of external content so that we can use a nice unified search solution and I would like to rebuild the original objects from the search hits to get to the custom properties of the items. The OriginalObjectType is set correctly, but the OriginalObjectGetter is null
