Examine Config

Configure Umbraco Examine indexes from the web.config!

In Umbraco 7 Examine indexes were configured via the friendly ExamineIndexes.config and ExamineSettings.config files. However in Umbraco 8 this configuration has moved into code, perhaps making it more difficult to configure indexes as desired. This project aims to replicate many of the helpful features of the Umbraco 7 Examine config files within Umbraco 8.


The package can be used to configure settings for the "Internal", "External" and "Media" Examine indexes in Umbraco.

It is possible to configure ParentIdIncludeItemTypesExcludeItemTypes, and SupportProtectedContent per index.

Settings are configured within the appsettings section of your web.config file for your Umbraco install. Appsetting names follow a convention of: Umbraco.Examine.{INDEX-NAME}.{SETTING-NAME}.

For example, to enable SupportProtectedContent for the "External" the name would be Umbraco.Examine.ExternalIndex.SupportProtectedContent.
