I am publishing pages in Tridion and they are working well but when I published one category it shows success message, mapping in config file says its going into broker database, I am looking into "ITEM_CATEGORIES_AND_KEYWORDS" table but i don't have my category published there, how can i verify and there are no errors in log.?

I am getting continues warning mesages in log, Are these messages ignorable?

WARN FSTaxonomyDAO - TaxonomyDAO is set to File System, which is not supported. Check your bindings settings and/or license file.

  • And that warning should not be ignored, something is misconfigured

  • Could your license have expired? The broker defaults to FS if you don't have a valid license Nov 8, 2013 at 2:47
  • license is valid untill july 2014

  • are there no other warnings in the log file (can you log in debug mode) ? Could you also check if your cd_storage config xml file is valid. I remember seeing something similar when i had an error in my storage config, result was all mappings were set to the filesystem by default. Nov 8, 2013 at 8:53

Do you have defaultStorageId set to filesystem?

<ItemTypes defaultStorageId="defaultdb" cached="true">

If so, add

<Item typeMapping="Taxonomy" cached="true" storageId="defaultdb"/>

Also, check that your broker database connections are correct, and that other items types are appearing in the broker.

Also, as Chris says above.. check licence files, as Tridion won't publish to the broker if the license has expired / invalid for machine.

  • I was looking in the wrong table, as mentioned by Nuno Linhares "TAX_FACETS" is the right table for storing taxonomies.
