CMS Edit Block Search Not Working



I cannot get the block/media search in the right bar of the cms in edit mode to work. It currently returns no results regardless of the search parameter.

I recently upgraded my project to 7.5.409 however I am not certain that this is a contributing factor.

The json request made on text change is as follows:


The response is always "{}&&[]" no matter what the searchParameter is entered.

Any ideas how this should be resolved?

were you able to figure this out.. I have the same exact problem. Always getting no results and the response is also {host}/EPiServer/cms/Stores/contentstructure/?queryText={searchParameter}&query=searchcontent&allLanguages=true&contentSearchAreas=CMS%2Fblocks&searchRoots=3%2C57&maxResults=1000&filterDeleted=true

ALso not only the search for the Blocks and media doesnt work, also search for pages in the tree give the same behavior.. 

I'm using the latest EPiServer 8 updates..

Do i need to do something else to make this work?
