Using DEF 2.0.1 and Sitecore 9.0.1, I have a custom pipeline step to publish items that have been updated

[RequiredPipelineStepPlugins(new Type[] { typeof(EndpointSettings) })]
class PublishSitecoreItemStepProcessor : BasePipelineStepProcessor
    protected override void ProcessPipelineStep(PipelineStep pipelineStep, PipelineContext pipelineContext, ILogger logger)

I can add a break point to the ProcessPipelineStep and it's never hit. The processor step us using my own template which inherits from Base Pipeline Step. Any ideas?

  • Which Template do you use for this pipeline step? Can you add here also screenshots of DEF related sections of item like Administration, Endpoints, ... Commented May 16, 2018 at 5:21
  • Under "Administration" section, is this pipeline step Enabled? Just to be sure :) Commented May 16, 2018 at 5:22
  • This is similar to the issue I am having. I have been working with Sitecore support on resolving it. sitecore.stackexchange.com/questions/11396/…

  • Hi @PeterProchazka. Yes, the pipeline step is enabled. I've edited my question to include the processor type template (Base Pipeline Step). Endpoint is a standard Sitecore Item Model Repository Endpoint

    Did you specify supported template id for the converter?

Us we figured out from comments the problem was in the converter for created custom pipeline step.

The fix is to specify supported template id for the converter.

[SupportedIds("[TEMPLATE ID]")]
