Repo content model Unexpanded entity reference

Alfresco Community - 5.2.0 (re21f2be5-b22)



In short, we have custom content models both bootstrapped and also in the repository - Data Dictionary/Models repo space. Our local development is running fine so must be isolated to the models in the repo. However, we cannot seem to be able to find the source of the problem, since:


  • The repo content models have not changed
  • We cannot seem to find which model it's complaining about
  • We have tried deleting the indexes and models cache


While everything was working fine, the latest deployment will fail to start Alfresco and things get corrupted. This has also happened with a new server, so need to figure it out.



We have enabled debugging to get some logging.

# Dictionary/Model debugging



When starting up Alfresco, the following errors are what we see (attached full logs). 


ERROR [web.context.ContextLoader] Context initialization failed org.alfresco.service.cmr.dictionary.DictionaryException: 10140018 Failed to parse model
Caused by: org.jibx.runtime.JiBXException: Unexpanded entity reference in text at (line 1, col 704)


There doesn't seem to be any reference to which model and again since they have not changed, why would they suddenly fail?


Right now need to get to the bottom of it. Has anyone run into this before? Any way of getting deeper logs to find the affected model so we can look at it?


EDIT: Installing fresh

When we install a fresh instance with the code. There are no issues, after using it, then restarting and deploy - the same issue occurs.
