I'm using SitecoreContext.Cast(item, true, true) to map an item. It looks like elsewhere in the code, the same item has been casted to BaseType WITHOUT inferType = true before I make that call. When I do the next call with inferType = true, I'm getting the item back as a BaseType, instead of the inferred type. It appears that the item is being placed in the cache as BaseType, and the inferType = true call gets the item from the cache without inferring the type.

Is there something missing here, or a way to tell the Glass cache that it needs to pull the correct type out of the cache?


Could you try overriding the CacheKeyGenerator with the following class:

public class CacheKeyGenerator : ICacheKeyGenerator
    public string Generate(ObjectConstructionArgs args)
        var context = args.AbstractTypeCreationContext as SitecoreTypeCreationContext;

        return string.Format("{0}{1}{2}{3}{4}{5}{6}{7}",
            Sitecore.Context.Site == null ? string.Empty : Sitecore.Context.Site.Name,

Let me know if this fixes the issue because I think this is a bug.

  • I had found a temporary work around and wasn't able to get back to this issue until yesterday. I tested it and this did indeed fix the issue. Thanks!
