error setting fields on user object

When I try to set UserPermissionsOfflineUser (or any of the UserPermissions fields), I get the following error:

org.xml.sax.SAXException: Could not resolve ColumnType from FieldOrColumnCommon: Class

any ideas?


Hi onthebeach,

I have logged on bug on this issue and will post back to this thread on resolution.

I got this myself tonight:" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
      org.xml.sax.SAXException: Could not resolve ColumnType from FieldOrColumnCommon: class common.udd.impl.BitVectorItemCommonImpl



(full XML available on request. Editor doesn't seem to like it)

Perhaps this is because I have too many users in my Developer account?



This issue is resolved in the upcoming release.

Ok, thanks, but what does it mean in the present release?


Yes, as this is a bug, it will be patched on all versions.  This is as opposed to a new feature which would only be available on the latest version.

Dave, sorry I wasn't clear. I meant, "what does the error actually mean in the present release?"

Its a server side error where it fails to deserialize certain types of boolean fields that don't contain an xsi:type (typically from the enterprise endpoint)

Simon, thanks for the answer. In this case, it was a create call to the the Partner API.
