SDI 16.5 CSW returns no records



I set up a new server with the 2018 server products (GWM Essentials, Geospatial SDI) and created a new CSW. I configured the CSW to connect to an already existing CSW Oracle database.


Unfortunately the CSW does not return any records. At the same time a CSW on an older product successfully returns results using the same CSW database user.





<GetRecordsResponse xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.opengis.net/cat/csw/2.0.2 http://schemas.opengis.net/csw/2.0.2/CSW-discovery.xsd"><SearchStatus/><SearchResults numberOfRecordsMatched="0" numberOfRecordsReturned="0" nextRecord="0"/></GetRecordsResponse>


Also using the GetRecordById Request does not return the requested record even though the record ID is listed in the database. The same request returns a record when using an older CSW version.


Any ideas? Has anyone successfully set up a CSW with the new SDI version and got some records returned? Am I missing something (configuration etc...)?


Thanks and kind regards,

Re: SDI 16.5 CSW returns no records

Just a small update for the record and for whom it may concern:


This was indeed a configuration problem, as there were some custom metadata profiles in the CSW databse which at first I didn't provide in the new systems catalogue/1.2 directory.
