Just started experimenting with Find, I followed the steps to create a project with Find. When I login to episerver, I see the Find option in the top menu, and underneath the options:

Manage Configure Overview

But all three lead to:

Find version is  What have I done wrong?

Make sure you add Find's serviceUrl to your web.config. You will need to register for one here:

Yes, I have done all that.

Hello Peter

The Find UI is delivered as a service and downloaded on demand. From memory its downloaded from on your client and the server. Can you confirm you can access this URL? Also if you open developer tools in your browser can you confirm if all the resources load correctly?


Feb 22, 2016 17:51

Not sure what you mean; if I just type in my browser, I just get 504 - Gateway Timeout.

Using developer tools I see this error:

Error: scriptError
Stack trace:

Can you check if you can access the following URL:

Feb 22, 2016 18:27

Yes, that returns a whole mess of stuff, beginning with:

require({cache:{"epi-find/Configuration":function(){define("epi-find/Configuration",["dojo/_base/config","epi-find/Intents!"],function(_1){return {load:function(id,_2,_3){if(!_1.find){_1.find={

I see that it is an https address, and the 'find' index I created has a red X next to allow ssl. Could that be a factor?

Hi Peter

That looks like the correct response. 

SSL could be a factor but shouldn't affect your access to

Can you confirm what version of Find you are using? 


Feb 23, 2016 15:57

Hi David,

Find version is installed by doing:  Install-Package EPiServer.Find.Cms -Version

runtime version v4.0.30319

Episerver.Find.Cms is identical

Episerver,Find.Framework is identical

Episerver.Find.blocks version is, runtime version v4.0.30319

Episerver version 8.8

Feb 23, 2016 16:33

For what it's worth, I can use find from C# (make a client, index and search). It's just the cms interface that doesn't load.

Feb 25, 2016 17:40

Obviously its a UI specific issue so that's one thing to cross off the list :).

Are you running on a corporate network behind a proxy? I am wondering if something is being blocked as the application running in IIS is requesting the resources from . Perhaps you can run your IIS Application Pool as your local Windows user or at as a test?


Feb 25, 2016 17:58

Ps perhaps you can use Fiddler or Wireshark to look for the requests to and see why they are not being loaded properly?

Feb 25, 2016 18:00

Do you have anything defined in <episerver.find.ui /> config section?

Feb 25, 2016 18:14

No, there is no <episerver.find.ui> section.

Feb 25, 2016 18:18


Don't think it's a network problem; fails from home also, and at work a colleague doesn't have the same problem.

Already tried with Fiddler but saw nothing illuminating.

Feb 26, 2016 11:44

I had this problem, and the reason was having following tag in my web.config. I just simply removed the line and it starts working fine.

<episerver.find.ui clientSideResourceBaseUrl="*******"></episerver.find.ui>

Since this thread is the first result when searching with this error message, I'd just like to add that I was having this same problem recently and it turned out that it was caused by my browser's adblocker. The EasyPrivacy filter list includes the domain, which is used for loading scripts used by Find.

Agreed! This just happened for me :)

Same -- Firefox's default settings were causing this for me.

Ublock origin blocked it for me as well.
