Url property is not indexed



I've created a Url property like this:

public virtual Url MyUrl { get; set; }

When I get search hits (projections) using EPiServer Find 10, MyUrl is empty.

I've also checked the search index in EPiServer CMS by navigating to Find / Overview; MyUrl field is not indexed.

The property is properly stored into a database. I can fetch it using ContentLoader / ContentRepository.

Has anyone run into the same problem?

Have you tried marking it as searchable? [Searchable(true)]

Hi Johan,

[Searchable(true)] didn't solve the problem.

I think the Url type is excluded by default.

Perhaps you could add the field as a string. Add the following to an initializable module:

 SearchClient.Instance.Conventions.ForInstancesOf<StartPage>().IncludeField(x => x.CrazyUrl.ToString())

Remember to reindex! :-)

Tip: In situatiions like this you might want to check out EPiCode.InspectInIndex

I don't see IncludeField in that namespace anymore. Is there an alternative in the newer APIs? (EPiServer.Find.Cms version is

It's still the same.
It's in EPiServer.Find.ClientConventions in EPiserver.Find.dll

Ah, thanks that make sense - I was missing the ClientConventions bit i.e.

ContentIndexer.Instance.Conventions.ForInstancesOf<Fixture>().IncludeField(x => x.Tickets); //fail

Whereas this looks like it will work:

SearchClient.Instance.Conventions.ForInstancesOf<Fixture>().IncludeField(x => x.Tickets);
