Hi all,

 

We are not able to delete editable template on dispatcher rendered AEM 6.5 instance with service pack 7 installed.

 

Error while deleting  newly created template which is not referenced in any page:

 

Steps followed:

1. Login to dispatcher server http://local.author.abc.com/libs/wcm/core/content/sites/templates.html/conf/we-retail

2. Create a new template say TestTemplate

3. Delete this TestTemplate in draft/enable mode

 

we see below error:

Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token o in JSON at position 1
at JSON.parse (<anonymous>)

Error is thrown due to JSON.parse() method in templatedelete.is. data is passed as Object instead of String

 

 /libs/cq/gui/components/siteadmin/admin/templates/clientlibs/js/templatedelete.js

 

function handleDeleteRequest(paths) {
return $.ajax({
url: "/libs/wcm/core/content/sites/templates/usage.json",
type: "GET",
data: {
_charset_: "UTF-8",
path: paths
},
success: function(data) {
ui.clearWait();

// usages found
if (data && JSON.parse(data).anyTemplateUsed) {

 

We can delete editable templates from path http://localhost:4502/libs/wcm/core/content/sites/templates.html/conf/we-retail

 

Are there any configuration in dispatcher.any that we have to allow in order to delete Editable Templates.

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hina

Have you configured the dispatcher rules appropriately to not to cache anything under /apps and /libs?  It could be possible the usage.json mentioned in your screenshot is getting cached. If it is getting cached then make sure have disallowed /libs and /apps from the cache in your author dispatcher configuration.
