Could not map index document field to property "Paths" on type Sitecore.ContentSearch.SearchTypes.SearchResultItem

Sitecore Asked by Naveed Ahmad on December 22, 2020

Has anyone seen this error in the logs

Could not map index document field to property "Paths" on type Sitecore.ContentSearch.SearchTypes.SearchResultItem. Guid should contain 32 digits with 4 dashes (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx). Actual value: [orphan]

It looks like the item is published in the web database but SOLR is not indexing it properly.

We have done re-publish and re-index several times but nothing is making any difference. We can navigate to the page like /news/news1 but it is not coming up in the /news-listing page and the news-listing page is blank.

One Answer

After troubleshooting for many hours, we looked into the raw solr query for an effected item via the SOLR admin interface:

query: _uniqueid:97338416-a07a-4f0b-8078-7437b192e0e7

that retured this raw field in the SOLR:


The value of [orphan] was the issue and no matter how many times we published or re-indexed it didn't go away.

Then we ran these jobs from /sitecore/admin/dbcleanup.aspx

Cleanup Orphans Cleanup Orphan Fields Rebuild Descendants

Re-ran the SOLR index and all the results were back.
