PnP List deploy error "The field was found invalid...

Using powershell I extracted a site definition to a pnp file. While trying to deploy from my visual studio project I receive the following error during list deployment and at this stage the term store has already been deployed.

 

"The field was found invalid:  {sitecollectiontermstoreid}"

 

Any pointers here as to why {sitecollectiontermstoreid} invalid?

HI @david.calabro,

 

Are you using SharePoint online or on premises?

 

Are you applying the template to the same tenant/farm as you are exporting it from?

 

I've seen similar issues when there either is no term store or if the termsets are not replicated.

 

You might want to run

 

Set-PnPTraceLog -On -Level Debug

 

prior to the Apply-PnPProvisioningTemplate Then you will get some more clue. Please copy the last 10 lines or so into a post here.

@Pieter Veenstra I am applying to a different farm on premises. After viewing the managed meta data service I do see all expected terms since I used pnp to import the pnp:TermGroups section as well.

 

The trace log reports the same information but nothing else that appears helpful to me.

Hi @david.calabro,

 

could it be that you have multiple termstores? I had something similar yesterday and I haven't found a workaround for that yet. PnP doesn't seem to give an option to select a term store.

 

 

Re: PnP List deploy error "The field was found inv...

I'm not even sure what that would look like. How would I check for multiple term stores?

 

If I go to http://myinternalsite.net/sites/site1/_layouts/15/termstoremanager.aspx I don't see anything duplicated.

I'm fairly new to PnP but could it be that I'm not populating a value somewhere that it uses for {sitecollectiontermstoreid} or would that be a token that it swaps out automatically?

Check in central admin -services in this farm- check for multiple managed metadata services

Re: PnP List deploy error "The field was found inv...

I have confirmed that multiple services do not exist.

Re: PnP List deploy error "The field was found inv...

Hi @david.calabro, yes this is a token that should be resolved. So for somereason the PowerShell can't cget to the termstore.

 

Has the user that you are runnning as  been specified as a term store administrator.

 

Does the column get created?

Is this a site column or a list column? 

Are you able to share the xml from the template?

I updated the pnp package through NuGet and the problem seems to have been resolved.
