I m using SDL Web8.5.

Update 04-12-2018

We are now able to open the General tab and Source tab of schema (with the new Root Element Name), however we are getting errors when opening Design tab of schema and any components based on the schema. Please see below error.

Error when opening Design tab of schema (Schema ID: tcm:3-2163-8):

Unable to retrieve converted schema Type 'uuid:62a5abb0-5a32-414f-b1b9-0c3705e0e815:Content' is not declared.

Error when opening components based on schema:

Unable to retrieve instance data for the schema with id tcm:3-2163-8 Type 'uuid:62a5abb0-5a32-414f-b1b9-0c3705e0e815:Content' is not declared.

(80040356) Unable to retrieve instance data for the schema with id tcm:3-2163-8 Type 'uuid:62a5abb0-5a32-414f-b1b9-0c3705e0e815:Content' is not declared. Type 'uuid:62a5abb0-5a32-414f-b1b9-0c3705e0e815:Content' is not declared.

Kindly advice.

  • Try fixing the root element/type name in the Source tab (XSD), Save & Close the Schema and then re-open it. The Schema should be fixed and it should be possible to open the Design tab again. – Rick Pannekoek Dec 4 at 15:42
  • @RickPannekoek The source (XSD) already has the correct root element name <xsd:element name="EconomicTableDefinition">. The error message says `Type uuid:62a5abb0-5a32-414f-b1b9-0c3705e0e815:Content' is not declared. Why is it still trying to find Content? – Husain Zahid Dec 4 at 18:06
  • Check for <xsd:element type=“Content”> references in the XSD. – Rick Pannekoek Dec 4 at 20:53
  • @RickPannekoek thanks for pointing this out. this was the fix. – Husain Zahid Dec 5 at 2:22
  • Isn’t that what I said or am I missing something? – Jonathan Williams Dec 5 at 16:19

Looking at the error message, it is probably that you've updated the Root Element Name of the Embeddable Schema that you're using for the footnote-new field from Content to something else.

You may need to update this in the source of your main schema (on the first line here):

<xsd:element name="footnote-new" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" type="Content">
<xsd:annotation>
<xsd:appinfo>
    <tcm:ExtensionXml xmlns:tcm="http://www.tridion.com/ContentManager/5.0" />
    <tcm:EmbeddedSchema xlink:href="tcm:0-110119-8" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xmlns:tcm="http://www.tridion.com/ContentManager/5.0" />
</xsd:appinfo>
</xsd:annotation>

  • your right but i m not able to save schema after changing the source.it is throwing same error while saving – Abdul Qadir Nov 28 at 13:15
  • As Marko mentions below, I think you'll have to remove the footnote-new field from your schema, save it and then re-add the field. As Marko also mentions, this may result in data loss from your components, so please proceed with caution! – Jonathan Williams Nov 28 at 13:20

As Jonathan said in his comment, you updated root element name of your embeddable schema from Content to something else, and now in your main schema reference is not OK to embeddable schema field. To fix this, you must remove field in main schema and add it again.

This will de facto destroy data in your old components based on your main schema since data structure is changed.

Embedded schemas should all have different root element name in the system, because if 2 have the same one, and if they are used in a single schema, you will not be able to save the component in that case, since Tridion will have difficulties mapping the content.

  • Marko as you said if I remove this field it will destroy all data of that field and we have to reenter those data.it will create a major issue since there are too many components .is there any other way? – Abdul Qadir Nov 28 at 13:32
  • yes. and no :D. You remove the field and add it again. Indeed it will destroy the data, but in new version of component. Via code you can always read previous version, map old values to new values and save component. That's what we did when we updated our schemas. – Marko Milic Nov 28 at 13:34
  • Marko you mean it will destroy data in the current version but data will be there in old version – Abdul Qadir Nov 28 at 13:37
  • exactly. Only if you open component via GUI, it will destroy old data, and you won't see it. If you open previous version via code, the data is still there. This is so because components are synced against schema when they are opened via GUI, or if you execute this action via code explicitly calling SyncComponentWithShcema method. – Marko Milic Nov 28 at 13:39
  • Thanks Marco will try to do that – Abdul Qadir Nov 28 at 13:41
