AEM link checker doesn't show any values in the "Referrer" column

Hi All,

 

I was going through the AEM link checker documentation and didn't find any details on why the "Referrer" column or its value is empty when we I hit the "http://localhost:4502/etc/linkchecker.html" url.

 

I believe this column is to show all the references where the link is referenced, is my understanding right ?

If yes then may i know why the column is empty ? If not, is it possible to get all the referred pages of all the valid or invalid links ? 

Thanks,

Praveen

Hi @praveen_k_m ,

There is an OSGI configuration "Day CQ Link Checker Info Storage Service" to enable referrer for the URLs generated in link checker report.

Can you please check this configuration enabled or not? If it unticked then reference would not come along with URLs.

 

Thanks,

Hi @Umesh_Thakur ,

 

Thanks for the reply. I believe the link which you gave points towards marking a link to skip validations, however my question was regarding the "Referrer" column which had no results.

 

After some more digging I found that by enabling "Save external link references" in the "Day CQ Link Checker Info Storage Service" config, I was able to see the page references in the "Referrer" Column.

Thanks,

Praveen
