Creating New Asset Using AssetAPI Fails, Unique Constraint Violated

Information in this document applies to any platform.


We create assets in a standalone application using Asset API. Occasionally this fails due to a constraint conflict (e.g. on AssetPublication table), when CS allocates an ID to the asset which has already been allocated before to a different asset.

For example

Exception executing prepared statement: INSERT INTO AssetPublication (ID,PUBID,ASSETTYPE,ASSETID) VALUES (?,?,?,?)
ID = 1279340055967
PUBID = 1265114392131
ASSETID = 1372194999713
java.sql.SQLException: ORA-00001: unique constraint (CUST_FWE.I1277985477639) violated

fails because there already exists an asset on this publication with a different assettype but the same assetid 1372194999713
