"An item with the same key has already been added"

Vote:
 

This is my scenario:

I am using UnifiedSearchFor to search in content types together with a few custom types. For one of the custom types (Employee) I want to show some additional info in the search hit compared to a hit for e.g a standard content page.

To do this I have added the following conventions:

SearchClient.Instance.Conventions.UnifiedSearchRegistry
.Add();
SearchClient.Instance.Conventions
.ForInstancesOf()
.IncludeField(e => e.EmployeeMetaData());
SearchClient.Instance.Conventions.UnifiedSearchRegistry
.ForInstanceOf()
.ProjectMetaDataFrom(e => e.EmployeeMetaData());

where the extensionmethod EmployeeMetaData looks something like this:

private static IDictionary EmployeeMetaData(this Employee e)
        {                           
            var metaData = new Dictionary
            {
                {"Titel", e.Title},
                {"Telefon", e.Phone},
                {"Mobil", e.CellPhone},
                {"E-post", e.Email},
            };

            return metaData;
        }

So far so good, the UnifiedSearchHit.MetaData contains the info I want to show. However, when I call Client.Get(id) I get: "System.ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added".

Is this some bug or am I simply doing this the wrong way?

Any particular reason you are putting the values in a dictionary? The way I see it, would it not be better to create a MetaData class and populate that instead? That would not mess up the deserialization and it would also make it a lot easier to query.

EDIT: Right, because of ProjectMetaDataFrom. I guess I should have read the entire question ;-)

Hi,

So this is a bug then. Problem occurs when we are deserializing the dictionary and it is static like that. Meaning it is already there. We need to fail silently here then I assume.

I have added a bug for this. We will look at it as soon as possible.

Ok, thanks! I forgot to mention that we are currently using version 8.0.3.411 of Find, if you need it for the bug report.

An item with the same key has already been added.
I'm getting this error on my production.

the Epi find version: 13.4.3
EPiServer.ContentDeliveryApi.Search 2.18.0
EPiServer.ContentDeliveryApi 2.4.0
any idea how can I fix that on my prod?
I can't replicate that on my local


Step to reproduce:
for the replication
I added a new link to the a linkitem collection area
wait for showing the autosave
nothing happened
refresh the page
page marked as published
even after the reverting the page can't edit and publish again

Does anyone has any idea ?

I found this link related to that issue here but it doesn't help:

 can't find  a file called LinkItemCollection.cshtml nor the mentioned line
