WCI: Sharepoint Console Crawler Does Not Work When Target Path Is Configured With Trailing Forward Slash ('/') (Doc ID 1314173.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter SharePoint Console - Version 1.0 to 1.1.1
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)
***Checked for relevance on 18-JUL-2013***

Symptoms

When you create a new Sharepoint Console Crawler and, in the crawler configuration settings for Sharepoint Site URL, you specify a URL with a trailing forward slash ("/"), clicking on the "Validate" button in the Sharepoint crawler editor causes a 404 error. Also, when you attempt to run the crawler job, the crawler job fails and generates a stack trace similar to the following in a PTSpy capture filtered for the automation service:

Caught Web Exception while validating Url
System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (404) Not Found.
    at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.CheckFinalStatus()
    at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.EndGetResponse(IAsyncResult asyncResult)
    at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse()
    at Plumtree.Remote.Crawler.SharePoint.Util.WebUtility.VerifyUrl(String url, NetworkCredential credentials)
