HTTP Web Server: Illegal Arguments Exception


Another that is usually URL based.


Sometimes seen if you try to open a document based on a key and the view you use doesn't contain the right sorted columns to find it. e.g.


"view" must have the first column sorted by the key value.

This error appears when we select Read Public Documents and Write Public Documents options for Default Access in the ACL.

To avoid this erros deselect them.

This one also occurs when you are referencing a document using the "/0/" view and document UNID, but don't have a default view set.

As an addition to Jake's error cause description, this error can of course also of course if you try to access a view on the web that is not accessible by the currently active user.

You might also get this error on "?logout" when the "Maximum cached users" in the server document (under Internet Protocols -> Domino Web Engine) is set to 0. This is fixed in 6.5.1. See:

2. Change view refresh options to automatic
