After running the Tridion CM installer (Oracle all seemed fine. However, when trying to add a new Publication, the following error is observed:

enter image description here

(80040356) Unable to save new item Stored procedure failed: SP_PUBLICATIONS_FIND_CONFLICTS ORA-06550: line %s, column %s: %s

The ORA-06550 indicates that a variable declaration was missed in the code, a developer error. Surely this can't be the real root cause in this case. When we ran the installer, everything looked normal, i.e. we didn't notice any errors. All was smooth.

The Event Viewer log shows this:

ORA-06550: line %s, column %s:

Component: Tridion.ContentManager.CoreService
Errorcode: 0

Any ideas on what went wrong?

The stored procedure SP_PUBLICATIONS_FIND_CONFLICTS is actually part of the Audience Manager feature. When we ran the Tridion 2013 SP1 installer, we left it checked. For some reason this stored proc has an invalid object and as a result does not compile. The Tridion Core Service makes a call to this procedure when saving a Publication and since it couldn't compile an error was thrown.

To work around the issue, we have re-ran the Tridion CM installer and unchecked Audience Manager to uninstall it. Once this was completed and the CM server got restarted, new Publications can now be saved.

As to why some of the stored procs in the Audience Manager database could not compile, we're reaching out to Support for help here.

  • The database tables and stored procedures are set up by the PowerShell scripts. It seems likely that someone either didn't run the scripts (if this was an upgrade) or perhaps they were aborted halfway through / raised errors that were then not fixed, leaving it in a failed state.
