How do I search for content properties from the Confluence Server search screen? Edited


I'm trying to reproduce what is being done in this blog post on Confluence Server (this article describes the process required for Confluence Connect):

I've been able to:


What I can't figure out is how to connect these two things together:
how can I search for the content properties from the Confluence Search screen?


Ultimately, I'd like to have an alias for the CQL content property field like in the blog post above (instead of using the "[key].value" syntax).


Here's my atlassian-plugin.xml:

<atlassian-plugin key="${atlassian.plugin.key}" name="${}" plugins-version="2">
        <vendor name="${}" url="${project.organization.url}" />
        <param name="plugin-icon">images/pluginIcon.png</param>
        <param name="plugin-logo">images/pluginLogo.png</param>

    <!-- add our i18n resource -->
    <resource type="i18n" name="i18n" location="search"/>
    <!-- add our web resources -->
    <web-resource key="search-resources" name="search Web Resources">
        <resource type="download" name="search.css" location="/css/search.css"/>
        <resource type="download" name="search.js" location="/js/search.js"/>
        <resource type="download" name="images/" location="/images"/>


    <content-property-index-schema key="mxdoc-schema-module-key">
        <key property-key="mxdoc">
            <extract path="fileid" type="number"/>

    <cql-query-field fieldName="fileid" key="mxdoc-fileid-field"
                     name="FileID" class="">
        <ui-support value-type="number" i18n-key="cql.field.fileid"/>




Here's the Java code I've written so far (I'm not sure how to reference content properties from within the plugin code):

public class FileIdHandler extends BaseFieldHandler implements NumericFieldHandler<V2SearchQueryWrapper> {

    private static final String FILEID_FIELD = "fileid";

    public FileIdHandler() {
        super(FILEID_FIELD, true);

    public V2SearchQueryWrapper build(RangeExpressionData rangeExpressionData, String value) {

        return wrapV2Search(new TermQuery(FILEID_FIELD, value), rangeExpressionData);
