epifind - statistics



I'm trying to active Find tab in our episerver site to view statistics. I put the required configuration code in the web.config like the followling, but I am getting error 

Statistics not configured or invalid configuration.

Statistics require a configuration section of type EPiServer.Find.Statistics.Configuration with a valid service URL and API keys.

ConfigurationErrorsException: The Configuration for EPiServer Statistics cannot be empty

at EPiServer.Find.Framework.Statistics.ForInternalUseOnly.StatisticsClient.CreateFromConfig()
at EPiServer.Find.Framework.UI.Controllers.StatisticsController.Index(Nullable`1 from, Nullable`1 to)


 <section name="episerver.find" type="EPiServer.Find.Configuration, EPiServer.Find" requirePermission="false"/>


<episerver.find serviceUrl="xxxxxxxx" defaultIndex="xxxx"/>
<episerver configSource="episerver.config"/>


Any help is appreciated !!

Have you enabled stats on your index? This is done by clicking the "add stats" button on the index details at If you have, and still get the error, which version of Find are you using?

Hi Per,Suresh,

Sorry that I'm posting on an old thread, but I'm hoping you could help me on the issue I'm stuck with.

I'm currently integrating Episerver Find with an Episerver CMS 6 R2 site. I have created an index on, but couldnt locate the "add stats" button you have mentioned. I'm attempting to implement "Did you mean" feature, which seem to require enabling "statistics". Can you please let me know how to achieve this?

Statistics should be created automatically. Check the "Index details". It should say "Status: CreatedWithStats"
