I have a custom index for my tenant and I configured custom indexes on Sitegrouping to be used by our sites.

On the Search page I have Checkbox filter, Search Box and Search results components .

On search results component I see next api calls :


where is used my custom index:


On the checklist filter component is calling next api:


but this api call is using default sxa index


How can I used my custom index inside checkbox filter component.

I checked this question : Where to check the index that is configured from SXA Search API? but it didn't help me.

  • What SXA version are you using? Commented Apr 27, 2020 at 12:53

    That is quite old version. At the latest code it works fine, we have separate service which is resolving an index for the site. I will need to check how this was looking in the past on 1.7. Will check that for you tomorrow! Commented Apr 27, 2020 at 18:13
  • thank you Dawid. I guess I have to check Sitecore.XA.Foundation.Search.Services.IndexResolver Commented Apr 27, 2020 at 18:44

We recently faced same issue on Sitecore 9.0.2 & SXA 1.7.1.

when contacted the Support team, they did mention it is a bug and provided patch for it.

Reference number: 255689
