How can i get a reference to the start page from within a scheduled task?


I have a scheduled task that requires a reference to the start page, but ContentReference.StartPage is null in this situation.

From what I have seen other people get round this by putting * in as host - but I am pretty sure the client is not going to go for that on prod and anyway it feels like a bodge (workaround for bad code).

What is the correct way to get a reference to the start page in this situation?

Since a scheduled job is outside the Context, Episerver don't know WHICH start page you'd be referring to in case you'd have a multi site setup, and which language.

Check the SiteDefinitionRepository

var siteDefinitionRepository = ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<SiteDefinitionRepository>();
var siteDefinitions = siteDefinitionRepository.List().ToList();
foreach (var siteDefinition in siteDefinitions)

Check what you can do with the SiteDefinition here. For example siteDefinition.StartPage
