Updating namespace of PropertyList<TCustom> that has instances with data bricks system during ModelSyncInitialization

Vote:
 

Hi there,

I'm from Developer Support Hà Nội, 

Our partner has an issue when they update namespace of PropertyList. 

with content:

Updating namespace of PropertyList that has instances with data bricks system during ModelSyncInitialization with error "Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: [. Path '', line 1, position 1.".

It seems that the property definition type name in the database is not updated correctly with the new namespace.

Stack trace:

Also had issues with this earlier. Had to update the namespace in the db to fix it :/

I seem to having this issue after some refactoring, but I can´t find my property lists in the database, can you point me in the right direction? I´ve checked several tables but I think they should be in the table tblContentType because that´s where I found page types, block types etc, but can´t find my property lists. Isn´t that weird?

Thanks!

Hi Petra, we had to change the table with name "tblPropertyDefinitionType". We updated the AssemblyName column to point to the new namespace after refactoring

I didn´t work fully for us though and instead of troubleshooting it further (time constraints) we took a database copy from production since we needed a database with fresh content anyway.

Definitely learned something though! Thanks!
