UnifiedSearch no files in result after upgrade to 7.5 ()


After upgrading the site from CMS 7.1 to CMS 7.5 and Find to 7.5.450.89 I don't get any files back in a unified search result.

The simplest query without any filters "SearchClient.Instance.UnifiedSearch().For("foo").GetResult().TotalMatching" returns 0.

When browsing the index the files are indexed as EPiServer_Web_Hosting_VersioningFile instead of my custom "GenericMedia" class. And I can't see "GenericMedia" anywhere in the type hierarchy in the index.

You might need to do a reindex if you haven't done that yet.

I have upgraded the media and have manually reindexed it and no difference...

Reindex = EPiServer Find Content Indexing Job

Or is there an other way?

What happens if you upload a new file? Still nothing?
Do other media types show in in the index? If you have something like ImageMedia

Two things to check.

  1. Go into admin and Find and look in the index and see if there are any files in there
  2. If you are using filtering that only will index files that are linked, this code must change after a upgrade till EPiServer 7.5, see my blog here:
