HI Karl
Thanks for the patch. But after applying the patch also it still shows the same message for the connection. Can you please let me know if any additional changes required.

Hi Venkata,

Please see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CONNECTORS-1465 .  There is an attached patch which I think should solve your problem.  Please let me know.

The SharePoint connector uses HttpClient's DefaultRedirectStrategy, as described here:


It looks like httpclient no longer automatically redirects POST requests using this strategy; it should be LaxRedirectStrategy instead for that to happen.  I'll open a ticket and provide a patch.

When I am trying to connect to a sharepoint server using manifoldcf 2.8.1 I am getting following error.

The site at http://inv28webapps11/sites/portal did not exist or was external; skipping.
From my troubleshooting, going through some blogs and GitHub code, I found out the server is generating redirect response (http code 302).So it’s printing this message.
Can you please suggest any workaround in order to connect to a SharePoint server that’s generating redirect response.?

References for me to come to the conclusion.

and through chrome developer tools I found out server is indeed giving a 302 response.
