Implementing a 500 status code page


Is a 500 staus code page out of the box in optimizely, or is it possible to implement a page in case of a 500 error? We have already implemented a 404 page, maybe we can reuse something?

I don't think there is a built in page. also it does not "handle" 500 redirect, that's ASP.NET Core job. You probably can use UseStatusCodePagesWithRedirects and then reuse your 404 page to display 500 error if that happens?

Aha, i'll take a look at the UseStatusCodePagesWithRedirects. Thank you!

I would recommend using UseStatusCodePagesWithReExecute instead of UseStatusCodePagesWithRedirects, then the error code and URL is kept. As of EPiServer.CMS.UI 12.20.0 we do provide error pages for 403, 404 and 500 when not in development mode/environment. So if you set environment name to production, you can actually test this.

that's ... new to me :) interesting that we now include the error pages

Ah okey. If it's out-of-the-box we won't have to implement a 500 error page. Thank you!

Wow, that's new to me too. Do you have more details about this built-in error pages? is it possible to customize that? what about if the solution has already used in the solution to handle errors, which one will be used? built-in one or custom one?

These error pages acts as fallbacks. So no, you can't customize them, they have static content. You customize by just adding your own error handling, e.g. via UseStatusCodePagesWithRedirects.
