EQG17074: Invalid facet path

After configuring SES, sometimes there is a situation wherein some of the functionalities start to work fine whereas some surprisingly give errors. I saw this situation twice – once in Recruiting Solutions and once in ELM wherein many of the search functionalities started to work fine except for one: Browse Applicants

Browse Applicants in Recruiting Solutions and Find Learning in ELM threw up this error:

Service Exception: Fault Code = env:Server : Fault String = [Server CodecHandler] Failed to encode fault
-> EQG17074: Invalid facet path: xxxxxx

It is interesting to note again that some of the SES functions were working fine and Diagnostic tests also worked fine.

<env:Envelope xmlns:env=”http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/”><env:Header/><env:Body><env:Fault><faultcode>env:Server</faultcode><faultstring>Server CodecHandler Failed to encode fault

</faultstring><detail><java:string xmlns:java=”java.io”>oracle.search.query.facet.InvalidFacetPathException: EQG17074: Invalid facet path: ptsf_sbo_name


Likely cause of this error is that a new instance was spun up and when one instance gets UN-deployed and the other gets attached, something incorrect is happening during the redeployment process.


  1. Un-deploy all deployed definitions
  2. From sql command line issue “DELETE FROM PS_PTSF_DEPLOY_OBJ” (Note: Do this only after successfully un-deploying all definitions)
  3. Deploy desired indexes
  4. Update both the search indexes and search categories.
  5. Run build index jobs.
