After I added new connection string into ConnectionStrings.config file, I cannot log into Sitecore and getting this exception:

enter image description here

Exception textually:

I have found root cause of this issue.

Database that should correspond to connection string was not present on SQL Server.

I was trying to add new publishing target to my Sitecore instance, therefore I have added new connection string for secondary web database.

I have forgotten to attach database into SQL Server and hence exception from Question.

Unfortunately, exception shown to the Sitecore user is not so descriptive and lead me nowhere. Indication for resolution was found in these exceptions in Sitecore error log:

ManagedPoolThread #2 12:56:18 ERROR Exception processing remote events from database: web_secondary Exception: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException Message: Login failed for user 'webuser'.

Hopefully this will help somebody with same exception. This is possible solution for you :)


i had this when i restored my PROD master DB to my local DEV environment.

ensure that your DB user masteruser

has both DataReader and DataWriter permissions.

once allocated you should be able to log into the experience platform

GRANT EXECUTE TO [masteruser];

ALTER ROLE db_datareader ADD MEMBER [masteruser]
ALTER ROLE db_datawriter ADD MEMBER [masteruser]
