I am populating the "xConnect Client Endpoint", path:

/sitecore/system/Data Exchange/xDB Data Migration 8x to 9 Branch/Endpoints/Providers/xConnect/xConnect Client Endpoint

The guide mentions,

"In the Collection Service Connection String Name field, specify the name of the connection stringfor the xConnect client service."

What connection does it refers to? If I use "xconnect.collection" (default connection string) that it points to "https://XPScaled910.search" I get the following message when I run the Troubleshooter:

"Exception was thrown. Read more in log file. An error occurred while sending the request."


What value should I put under "Collection Service Connection String Name"

Bonus Question

If I'm using the right connection string, why would I be getting that error message? There is nothing in the Sitecore log.


You need the name of your collection connection string

  • Cool, those are the right ones then. Any help with the Bonus Question? Mar 18 '19 at 14:46
  • The url XPScaled910.search does not seem right. It would be your xconnect url. Does your xconnect work?

  • When I open that URL on Edge, I see a timer, something lke "0:36:20.2572836" in the page. If I open the URL on Brave/Chrome, I get a 403.16 due to the self-signed certificate. What am I supposed to see there? Mar 18 '19 at 14:52
  • This all on one server or several?
