I have Web Forms for Marketers 8.0 Update-1 installed on Sitecore Experience Platform 8.0 Update-1 website which has analytics disabled and there is no MongoDB installed.

When submitting any form I got the following error:

4972 2017:02:02 03:27:53 WARN Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: owner
Exception: System.ArgumentNullException
Message: Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: owner
Source: Sitecore.Kernel
   at Sitecore.Diagnostics.Assert.ArgumentNotNull(Object argument, String argumentName)
   at Sitecore.Diagnostics.Log.Warn(String message, Object owner)
   at Sitecore.WFFM.Core.Extensions.Warn.IsNull(Object obj, String name)
   at Sitecore.WFFM.Analytics.AnalyticsTracker.get_SessionId()
   at Sitecore.Form.Core.FormDataHandler.ExecuteSaveActions(ID formId, ControlResult[] fields, ActionDefinition[] actions)
   at Sitecore.Form.Core.FormDataHandler.ProcessData(ID formID, ControlResult[] fields, ActionDefinition[] actions, CallContext context)

The submitted form data will be saved into MongoDB by default, Is there any way I can use to save to SQL instead, I tried the following marketplace module which also needs the analytics to be enabled?!

After switching to MongoDB, Sitecore introduced an option to use an SQL storage again only in 8.1. So I don't believe staying at 8.0 is an option in your situation.

If your decide to upgrade to 8.1, check out this tutorial on configuring the SQL storage for forms:


See the configuration file Include/Sitecore.WFFM.Dependencies.config for available forms storage providers.

  • Thanks, Dmytro, I know how to configure it in 8.1 but I am wondering if there is any workaround in 8.0 by which I can achieve this, So what you are saying is I only have to upgrade my site to 8.1 Feb 2, 2017 at 16:11

    @MohammedSyam That is my understanding, yes. Feb 2, 2017 at 16:22
