We recently migrated our site from 9.0.1 instance to 9.2. Everything works fine except that when I select a rendering in experience editor and try to locate the Datasource location for creating/ selecting a datasource it points to an abrupt parent and not the path that i had set in my datasouce location field in the rendering.

This was working fine on 9.0.1 but giving an issue on 9.2. I know the fix to it is mentioned in Datasource Location not working as expected , but i will have to attach the "query:/" string before every datasouce location in every rendering and we have a lot of renderings.

Any help is appreciated.

  • Take this to Sitecore Support. They have a hotfix for that. Be sure to detail the information you get back in an answer below. – Mark Cassidy Feb 13 '20 at 8:57

  • Thanks for the response Ghanendra but running power shell scripts is not my first preference since datasource location pointing is the default Sitecore functionality and it should have worked OOTB. So i am seeking for a more concrete solution. – Shomila Feb 13 '20 at 12:38

Sitecore support came to help at last! So yes, this is a known bug and Sitecore provides a hotfix package for the same. So in case you have the same issue you can approach Sitecore to get the hotfix package. Be sure to read the readme files so that you are aware about which dll's are impacted by this package.
