SharePoint search – The content processing pipeline failed to process the item

Filed under: SharePoint 2013 — Veera Kanithi @ 4:46 pm

Lot of times I have seen the error “The content processing pipeline failed to process the item. ( Index was out of range. Must be non-negative and less than the size of the collection. Parameter name: index; ; SearchID = xxx)” in search crawl logs especially when crawling Documents and List Items.

After a quick search, many sites pointed to rebuild the Search Service Application. It may fix the issue but that’s not the root cause.

In my case, the problem is with the improper Managed Property setting. I set the Allow multiple values to True of a Managed Property but the Site Column  does not accept multiple items.

Set the property to False and run full crawl, no more error.

Also do not set Allow Multiple Values on SecondaryFileExtension property, that could cause several issues.
