We have a content hub publishing a number of content types to another web application. One of the content types requires a custom document information panel (DIP) which is published to the hubs content type and syndicated accross. I am able to add a document on the contenttype consumer site collection and view the custom document information panel. However a problem ocurs with a User field in the DIP. because the custom form is hosted on the content type hubs site collection the form pulls user information from that sites user information list but when the document and metadata are saved to the consuming site collection a different user is saved because the user id's in both the site collections are different.
I have managed to get around this by turning off the read only flag on the content type and republishing the custom DIP to the consuming site collection however this fix is not idea as i will have to do this on every site collection and defeats the point of the content hub Any sugestions on another work around Thanks in advance
