How To Suppress Stack Traces In Browser When Using Non-existent Rtarget In Url

(Doc ID 1961272.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Portal - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Is there any way in a 11.1.1.6.0 Portal installation to prevent this error stack being shown in the browser when a non-existent URL is passed as follows :-

http://host:port/xxxyyy?_rtarget=someUnknownTarget

Error shown is
Error: The servlet produced the following error stack. java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Resource target portlet reference'someUnknownTarget' not found

when http.conf has
RewriteRule ^/xxxyyy(.*) /portal/page/portal/xxxyyy$1 [PT]


Similarly, the same error is seen with
http://host:port/portal/page/portal/VALID_PAGE_GROUP?_rtarget=someUnknownTarget
