U4-10613 - Examine - search in grid editor type fields not working anymore?

Created by andrei 01 Nov 2017, 09:20:27 Updated by andrei 01 Nov 2017, 13:22:04

We have a "grid" field/property on our content pages of type grid editor, which we use to add custom components. In v7.2 this field used to be indexed as a raw json value and we could use it to search for pages that have a specific component added on them by finding the component alias in that field. After upgrade to 7.6.6 it looks like this field is not saving a json value anymore, but just content stripped of json. And the raw json goes to another field '__Raw_grid'. So I think, oh, this should be an easy fix, we just change our search to look in the new field __Raw_grid. Wrong, I can't get any results, this field appear to be ignored by raw queries. So now we can't find the pages having a specific component and that affects the sitemap (a whole bunch of links related to those pages).

Any idea how can I search __Raw_grid field for pages having a specific component?
