CQ5.5 SP1: MalformedPathException: ‘:redirect’ is not a valid path. Prefix must not be empty


If you have updated to CQ5.5 Update 1 and you attempt to access a user profile page, for example the admin profile, as follows:


you will see the following exception in the error.log:

*ERROR* GET /home/users/a/admin/profile.form.html/content/geometrixx/en/toolbar/profiles/edit HTTP/1.1] Exception:

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: javax.jcr.RepositoryException: Failed to resolve path :redirect relative to node /home/users/a/admin/profile

Caused by: org.apache.jackrabbit.spi.commons.conversion.MalformedPathException: ‘:redirect’ is not a valid path. Prefix must not be empty


This issue is caused by a regression in the 2.1 version of Sling which has been integrated with CQ5.5 SP1:

The issue does not occur with the 2.0.10 version of Sling included with CQ5.5.


This issue will be resolved in the next release of CQ5.5 SP2.
