Unique String Field

Hi Sebastian,

I want to make a string field unique on the schema side. How can I achieve this? I set “isUnique”: true and synchronized, but it was not work.

Can you help me with this ?


What exactly did not happen?

I noticed that it does not work in fields with the localization option active.

sorry for taking your time

Yes, exactly. I think it is mentioned in the field docs.

The unique validator is just a validator, not a database constraint. Which means that it checks if there is another content item with the same field. It can become potentially expensive if you have configured a lot of languages. Therefore it is disable for localized fields.
