Find: Developer indexes with SSL (https)


Our developers are in need of a EPiServer Find index of their own when developing, but as I see from my developer index service type (at it does not support (https) SSL. We need all our traffic to be SSL supported even when developing as we use real data (also clients may have business secrets they don't won't to expose before launch data). Is it possible to obtain developer indexes which support SSL? With real or simulated real data in development it is very important that all traffic is encrypted between developer machine and EPiServer Find in the cloud!

Just change the URL from http:// to https:// in the config you get from the Find site.

Check that you are a part of SearchAdmins role.

<virtualRoles addClaims="true">
				<add name="SearchAdmins" type="EPiServer.Security.MappedRole, EPiServer.Framework" roles="SomeGroupName1,SomeGroupName2" mode="Any" />

Do you have this somewhere inside protectedModules?

		<protectedModules rootPath="~/EPiServer/">
			<add name="Find">
					<add assembly="EPiServer.Find.Framework" />
					<add assembly="EPiServer.Find.UI" />
					<add assembly="EPiServer.Find.Blocks" />

Hi Johan,

Thanks for your contnious support. Yes I did all settings. But not difference.

One thing I have noticed, in Admin mode when I try to access "Search Configuartion" it asking me credentials. So here I am not sure as I am administrator still it asking.

This is CMS 9 and Epi-Find 11.

Please suggest if you have any doubt?

Then it's probably your configured dev/demo index that's expired. Try aquire a new one from and change <episerver.find serviceUrl="" defaultIndex="" /> to what your are given.

Ok! But on my Epifind login it is not showing any expiration messsage?

How to find that?

One more thing remain to share , that from Admin mode Index rebuild working fine.
