Issues with Datasource Template and Datasource Location in the Search for the Associated Content dialog

  • When configuring an item's presentation details and selecting a rendering or sublayout datasource in the Search for the Associated Content dialog, the following issues may occur: 

    • When several items are set as the datasource locations for a rendering or sublayout, only the first item would be used for searching.
    • The datasource template parameter that was set on a rendering or sublayout may be ignored.
  • For Sitecore CMS 7.1 and later, apply the following patch to resolve the issue:

    1. Download the following assembly file and place it in the /bin folder.
    2. Download the following configuration file and place it in the /App_Config/Include folder.
    3. Download the DataSourceResult.aspx file and replace the /sitecore/shell/Applications/Buckets/DataSourceResult.aspx file with it.

    If a patch for Sitecore CMS 7.0 is needed, please contact Sitecore Support.
