On the IdentityServer I need to access the Sitecore.IdentityServer.Host.xml file to update the values of AllowedCorsOriginsGroup1 and PasswordRecoveryUrl to be the new DNS for the CM instance.

This is easy to do on XP0 locally. But when accessing the IdentityServer App Service in Azure the wwwroot is empty. What directory is the Sitecore.IdentityServer.Host.xml file located and the rest of the IdentityServer .NET Core app?

  • No it isn't. Empty, that is. Ours sits in /wwwroot/Config/production/Sitecore.IdentityServer.Host.xml. Are you sure you're looking in the App that ends with si and not the si-hp one?

  • I'm looking at the app service that ends with si. I've spun up a new XP1 and have the same issue where the si is empty. There are errors during the execution of the script but told by Sitecore Support that they are related to the Machine Learning params being empty but told they're not required Commented Aug 23, 2019 at 9:28
  • Well, I would say they're wrong :P there most definitely should be a file structure in the SI WebApp.

The source of the the wwwroot being empty for the IdentityServer was that the wrong web deploy package was used for the IdentityServer param in the parameters.json

"siMsDeployPackageUrl": {
      "value": "<url of your sitecore identity server deploy package>/Sitecore.IdentityServer.2.0.1-r00166.scwdp.zip"

The web deploy package of the IdentityServer is a separate download from the rest of Sitecore Web Deploy Packages and can be found here - https://dev.sitecore.net/Downloads/Sitecore_Identity.aspx.

Once downloaded, upload the Sitecore.IdentityServer.scwdp.zip to the same location as your other web deploy packages and reference it in your parameters.json.
