Error when loading Edit in CMS " Failed loading content with the url/uri: epi.cms.contentdata:///6"


I am trying to get into the edit area of episerver (I get a dashboard as the first page after login). But when I click on CMS and then Edit I get the following error message

Something Went Wrong

Error when loading Edit in CMS " Failed loading content with the url/uri:  epi.cms.contentdata:///6"\

[Reload] [Ignore]

I am using a mac. Other people can access, with the same credentials, without any problems. It is a pretty recent version of episerver as well.

Can you specify the Episerver CMS version you're using? Also, which browser version are you're using?

We have a user with a similar problem - the reason seems to be that this user has selected a somewhat invalid Content project. The user has the same problem on different OS machines. We fixed the problem by deleting the project in tblProject and tblProjectItem.

You can try below options to fix the error if one is failed then try other

  1. After changing the dependency type in the module.config from RunAfter to Require, I am able to get the edit area of Episerver.

<add dependency="CMS" type="Require"/>

    2. Add custom error mode in CMS project web.config

<customErrors mode="Off"/>

3. In my case the issue was related to caching. I have implemented caching delete functionality following the below blog post and solved the error.

A few things that should help you get the answers faster/more reliable:

  • Your exact version of CMS Core and UI.
  • If you see anything in the browser console, there should be failed requests (http 500), what is the response)
  • If not, is there anything in log?
