Media assets pane search not working


Hello guys

Can someone help me understand why I can't search, by name, in the media assets pane? There's lots of pdfs and docxs but they do absolutely not show up when searching. I can search by their ID though, but need to be able to search by name.

Image 1 shows the media pane.

Image 2 shows search query "inbjudan" and no hits, though there should be several hits (don't know exactly how many).

Image 3 shows searching in the Find admin page for "inbjudan" with lots of document hits including the one I'm looking for (circled).

As far as I can see there hasn't been any tampering with what gets indexed in any of the IInitializableModule-files.

Have anyone seen this before?

and this return 


However I can able to search pages inside tree pane which hits below Url


I am using EPiserver Find.

If you have episerver find it would usually be using this as the CMS search provider, you might want to check and make sure your blocks are in your search index via the admin tool if this is the case, sometimes blocks are turned off indexing by convension for some front end site logic but as it's shared across both CMS and website it's worth checking

Hi Scott,

If you mean by search configuration in Admin than I can see everything is selected. or is it something else i need to look into?

No I'm referring to looking in the Find admin and making sure you're block/media items that are missing are in your index

Hi Scott,

Block and documents are present in Index but during initialization I removed Images from index that is why it is not appearing in search. However global search(on top right corner in edit mode) is working perfectly searching blocks,documents,pages and content but search in asset pane is not working where we have blocks and media.

if my short memory will not let me down - asset search is Find based as well..
