I need to get the context item to create a "SearchContext" in my repository class using the following configurator :

public class DependencyInjectionConfigurator : IServicesConfigurator
    public void Configure(IServiceCollection serviceCollection)
        serviceCollection.AddTransient<Item>(m => Sitecore.Context.Item ??

The example class is used in a pipeline and is pretty basic:

public class Example
    public Example(Item contextItem)
        //do stuff

I get the error:

Unable to resolve service for type 'Example' while attempting to activate 'CustomHttpRequestProcessor'.
InvalidOperationException: Unable to resolve service for type 'Example' while attempting to activate 'CustomHttpRequestProcessor'.]

I should mention I set resolve=true in the configuration

  • Remember in a pipeline/processor you need to set the attribute Resolve="true". If you already did that, please update your question.
