Compliance Suite content type conflict with SharePoint content types


Content Governance for SharePoint


Compliance Suite

Product Version

(FA) All versions


When activating Compliance Suite on Record Centers you might run into a content type conflict issue when activating 'Compliance Suite - Transfer Content Types' Feature where following OOTB SharePoint features are active:



Root Cause

The above features create the 'Status' site column which conficts with Gimmal site column of the same internal and display name.  The SharePoint 'Status' site column and Gimmal 'Status' site column have different GUIDs, which causes issues with lookups for the Gimmal 'Status' site column in Compliance Suite. 



​Do not activate the SharePoint Search Config features in a Record Center site that will host Gimmal Compliance Suite components.  Either deactive the SharePoint Search Config features in the Record Center, or utilize another site collection that does not have the SharePoint Search Config features activated to host Gimmal Compliance SUite components.
