Caught exception while running initialize services

SEVERE: Caught an exception while invoking method ‘importApplication’ on object ‘IFCR’. Releasing locks. Failed with error Bad Request (400):  “com.endeca.content.core.DocumentHandlerException: ecr:type was not specified at path: /sites/MyAppen/redirects”

This would mean that ecr:type is not defined for MyAppen under the configuration at following location <app-direcotry>/config/import/redirects/_.json

The redirect-group is the ecr-type for the redirects grouping under different directories/application.

Fix – vi

Add “ecr:type”: “redirects” :


“ecr:lastModifiedBy”: “admin”,

“ecr:lastModified”: “2018-12-11T13:35:24.315-05:00”,

“ecr:createDate”: “2019-05-15T13:55:26.677-05:00”,

“ecr:type”: “redirects”,

“ecr:permissions”: {

“Business Users”: {“allow”: [




“grpLGUser-DT-Endeca-BusinessUsers”: {“allow”: [
