So I have my unicorn autopublish file below and the patch I added to it. I still seem to have trouble with the files actually getting published to the databases for web_uk and web_west. Just wondering if I need anything else on my patch file or if I should look into the unicorn upgrade as a possibility of not getting all the files up correctly.

            <!-- when all configurations have synced, fire off a publish that processes the queue we've accumulated -->
            <processor type="Unicorn.Pipelines.UnicornSyncEnd.TriggerAutoPublishSyncedItems, Unicorn">
                <PublishTriggerItemId>/sitecore/templates/Common/Folder</PublishTriggerItemId> <!-- the trigger item can be any leaf node Sitecore item - just has to have a 'starting point' for the publish -->
                <!-- these are the database(s) to publish synced items to -->
                <TargetDatabases hint="list:AddTargetDatabase">


<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/"
    <unicorn patch:source="Sitecore.Unicorn.AutoPublish.config">
      <TargetDatabases hint="list:AddTargetDatabase" environment:require="prodcm or prodcd">

You don't mention your specific Sitecore version nor Unicorn version. But in the right set of circumstances, e.g. a Sitecore 10.x and a Unicorn version below 4.1.5, you could definitely run into publishing problems due to API changes in Sitecore.

Unicorn release 4.1.6 should solve your problems.

  • Unicorn 4.1.1 and Sitecore 9.3. I have heard the upgrade of unicorn might be the best option so looking at that option now. Thanks Mar 4 at 15:41
