SPUserField (Author, Editor, etc...) - Value cannot be null. Parameter name: value RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    When I am trying to view all of the SPUserField properties (like the author, editor or others) I always get this message "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: value".

    I getting errors in the search crawler (Site Data Web Service: (*** Value cannot be null. Parameter name: s)) and I think it has something to do with this problem

    Any thoughts,

    Thanks for the help,

    Best Regards,

  • Hi arec,

    After my search, there is a solution for this.


    ASMX Service fails in production. It sends the following response. "Value cannot be null...Parameter name: value" signifies the failure to find the certificate. It works fine once the user logs on to the machine and continue for some time even after logging off.

    Looked the web services code and saw that they are picking up the certificates from current store. Recommended picking the certificates from local machine store instead.


    Moved the certificates to local machine store and it fixed the issue.
