    Parameter name indexset on Lucene Examine Indexer provider...

    I'm trying to implement a custom search on Umbraco Examine. When I modify the ExamineSettings.config I get this error:

    Error: Parameter name indexset on Lucene Examine Indexer provider has not been set in configuration and / or the IndexerData property has not been explicitly set.

    I am using the following:


    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    Umbraco examine is an extensible indexer and search engine.
    This configuration file can be extended to add your own search/index providers.
    Index sets can be defined in the ExamineIndex.config if you're using the standard provider model.

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here? Any ideas would be gratefully received.

    Hi Andrew

    I've cut and paste your configuration into a test site in Umbraco 7.12.4 and I don't get any errors! so it all looks ok. Which version of Umbraco are you using?

    The Indexer and Searcher in the ExamineSettings.config should 'wire' up via a naming convention to use the relevant IndexSet - which I think you've followed correctly. However you can explicity define the name of the IndexSet on the indexer, and as this is what your error message appears to be describing, I'd try adding the name of the IndexSet to the Indexer configuration.

      <add name="RelatedLegalArticlesIndexer" type="UmbracoExamine.UmbracoContentIndexer, UmbracoExamine"  indexSet="RelatedLegalArticlesIndexSet" analyzer="Lucene.Net.Analysis.Standard.StandardAnalyzer, Lucene.Net" />

    I'd make sure your Analyzer on your 'Indexer' matches your 'Searcher'.

    And I'd make sure to peform an application pool recycle and a rebuild of the indexes everytime you change these settings.
