The 'ShouldIndex' function could not be evaluated for Page: 358. Can't load property type


Hi,We are using EPiServer CMS 6 R2.

Recently we have createda custom property which is a listbox.

Everything is working fine in development environment, but when we moved the code to Test environment we are seeing an Error message while running the EPiServer Find CMS Indexing Job.

The Error message says:

Indexing job [unknown] [Page]: An error occured while filtering Page: 358. The 'ShouldIndex' function could not be evaluated for Page: 358. Can't load property type 'EPiServer.TRW.CustomProperty.SignPostListBox, EPiServer.Templates.Public'

We are wondering when the same code is working in dev environment why it is not working in Test environment.


Can somebody please help me to solve this issue.

Does Test and Dev environment use the same database or are those separate?

Dev and Test environments are using seperate databases.

If you navigate to admin/config/property configuration and "Edit custom property types" --> can you verify that the property in question is not registered in EPiServer several times, and that the type is correct.

I checked it and confirming that it is registered only once with the same name as we specified in dev.

Is ther any other check that I'm missing here?

Are there any more detailed error in the episerver log file? It's usually saves the stacktrace there
