Nested Convetion not working for extension methods

Vote:
 

Hi, I have an extension method that returns an list of object with properies that I want to be able to filter and sort on.

clientConventions.ForInstancesOf().IncludeField(document => document.FindVariations());
clientConventions.NestedConventions.ForType().Add(document => document.FindVariations());

But when I try to filter or sort on the extension method I get an error saying that the it isn't a nested object. And if I look in the index I can see that the property is missing the $$nested sufix.

"FindVariations": [
        {
            "$type": "Avensia.Storefront.Starter.Infrastructure.Find.Models.FindWebVariation, Avensia.Storefront.Starter",
}

Thi problem only seems to happen when its an extension method.

According to https://world.episerver.com/documentation/developer-guides/find/NET-Client-API/searching/nested-queries/ this should work and I can't find anything suggesting otherwise.

Have you tried to use ForInstanceOf<WebProduct> instead?

I added FindVariations => this.FindVariations() to WebProduct and made a NestadConvention for that to make it work, but this nevet sat right with mer.

Thanks for the help.
