Publishing an item after resetting a field to its standard value requires publishing twice

  • This issue occurs when resetting a field value to its standard value and trying to publish the item as Administrator.

    The first publish gives no result, and you only see the applied changes after publishing the item a second time.

  • To resolve this issue, download and install the hotfix compatible with the affected product version:

    Be aware that the hotfix was built for a specific Sitecore XP version and you must not install it on other Sitecore XP versions or in combination with other hotfixes. If any other hotfixes have already been installed on a certain Sitecore XP instance, send a request for a compatibility check to Sitecore Support.

    Note that you must extract the ZIP file contents to locate the installation instructions and related files inside. You must install the hotfixes on a CM instance and then sync them with other instances using standard development practices.

    To get a solution for other releases, contact Sitecore Support.
