Xml parsing error in cloudera search

New Contributor


I have many xml files and have no control over the generation of them. The cloudera search was working fine for well formed xml's. However on bulk indexing, almost all the mappers are failing which results in the job being failed due to the following exception.


Caused by: org.kitesdk.morphline.api.MorphlineRuntimeException: com.ctc.wstx.exc.WstxUnexpectedCharException: Illegal character ((CTRL-CHAR, code 3)) at [row,col {unknown-source}]: [13220,0]


After careful research, I understood that these characters are not allowed in xml version 1.0 but allowed in 1.1. How to tell the morphline code to use xml 1.1 so that those characters are read properly.


I tried after looking into below class


xquery {
    features: {"XML_VERSION":"1.1"}


But got error 


Error: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unknown configuration option XML_VERSION


Also would the above option be best solution or do we have any other options.
