Unable to create Unique ID(Type Integer) for profile extension schema.



Hi Everyone,

I have extended profile schema and added few attributes. I was specifically needed an attribute to be unique key with Integer (64 bits, ±9,223×10^15) as attribute type. But I'm getting following warning while I'm preparing publish.

Warning : No key field in 'test (test)' has a dynamic default value, duplicating a 'profile' entity will not be possible.

And I'm getting the following errors when I'm publishing

WDB-200001 SQL statement 'CREATE UNIQUE INDEX NmsRecipient_cusDbindex ON NmsRecipient(biCusPk_testid)' could not be executed.

PGS-220000 PostgreSQL error: ERROR: could not create unique index "nmsrecipient_cusdbindex" DETAIL: Key (bicuspk_testid)=(7118) is duplicated.

But when I change the attribute type into text and selecting dynamic default value(This is not available for integer type) everything is going well.

Can anyone tell me how can I keep attribute type as integer and create a unique key of it?

Hi Everyone,

Really appreciate your help. Our team has figured out the issue. The warning can be ignored. We just have to check for duplicate values in the attribute column that we are setting as a unique key. So we have cleared the data and created the unique key and published the resource. Now everything works fine.

Thanks for all the help,

Hi Krishna,

You can try below code for creating a unique index of type int.

<dbindex name="id1" unique="true">

      <keyfield xpath="@id1"/>


  <attribute label="Identifier1" name="id1" type="int64"/>
