Ive found that the ne dropdown data type doesn't work within DTGE and Umbraco Cloud / Deploy
Info about this issue - and interim workaround - is available here:
I've no idea when Umbraco Deploy v1.0.22 is due to be released, (at the time of writing latest version is v1.0.21)
Hi Lee, thanks for repying.
I've added the workaround, and it does work for the dropdown on a doctype - thanks.
However, within the grid the data is not getting pulled over through deploy.
You originally said that the Dropdown.Flexible on DTGE didn't deploy, but now you're saying that no grid data is being deployed. I'm not sure that I follow?
Your best bet would be to contact Umbraco Cloud support to investigate this further, there could be a number of reasons this isn't working for you.
I created a Doc Type Grid Editor and added a the new Dropdown data type (dropdown.flexible).
The values weren't being transferred between environments on Umbraco Cloud.
Umbraco Cloud support suggested that I try adding the dropdown to a document type. Same issue with no values being transferred.
However, your suggestion above, on adding the workaround on the UmbracoDeply.Setting did work, but only when the dropdown is on the document type.
Thanks for you help anyway.
Hmmm, I'm not sure really - I'd be guessing what the issue could be then.
Make sure that you have the "Umbraco.Deploy.Contrib.Connectors.dll" file in your "/bin" folder, as that's the code that hooks up DTGE with Deploy. (Which should be part of every Umbraco Cloud project anyway).
Is it only DTGE data that isn't transferring or all Grid data? (like I say, there could be other reasons why it's not working).
Ive got the "Umbraco.Deploy.Contrib.Connectors.dll" in the bin folder.
Yeah, it's only the dropdown value that's not transferring. I've tried it with a DTGE with just the one dropdown, and also a DGTE with the dropdown and a text field. The text field gets transferred ok.
Thanks anyway for replying.
Hmmm... the only thing I can think of, which might sound obvious. Is the workaround (from UAAS-739) been applied to the target environment(s) too?
I've had a look and the setting is added on the dev instance.
Is the new flexible drowdown compatible with DTGE, is it just my install?
I'd assume so, but I haven't tried it on DTGE myself. (I've only used it on a doctype/page itself)
Ignoring the Deploy issue, is it working okay on your local instance? e.g. is it saving and displaying the dropdown's value?
Yeah, it works great on my local instance.
I've used the old dropdown and DTGE together on other Umbraco Cloud projects, and it works with no issues. Im concerned for the live cloud projects that have the same setup, suddenly break.
I'm also unable to get Dropdown.Flexible values to transfer on a DTGE within the grid editor layout. I have applied the work around on the local and dev environments, but it didn't help. Also see here: http://issues.umbraco.org/issue/UAAS-756#comment=67-47161.
This is kind of a major issue, as Martin mentions. Every time we deploy, whether to Dev or to Live, we have to remember to go to the target content page and fix up the dropdowns.
How do you apply this workaround?
can anyone assist please! thanks

First, maybe this issue has been fixed now? The Umbraco.Deploy.Contrib.Connectors.dll file I have has version 126.96.36.19991.
Second, here's what I put into the UmbracoDeploy.settings.config file back in August. Disclaimer, I can't guarantee that this is correct (I didn't find any docs on this either):

Thanks Tor - this fixed the dropdown issue for us, but in the process for deployment, we discovered another issue with cloud deployments. Ultimately support at umbraco cloud was able to fix that other issue with custom version of the plugin.
