    Can you check in your user.json that you are using https in host and authority? Aug 17, 2022 at 5:17
  • "host": "sitecoretestsc.dev.local", "authority": "sitecoretestidentityserver.dev.local", I have changed https now getting this erro Configured source item path /sitecore/content/SitecoreShades/StandBlog did not exist in Sitecore endpoint default (Host: sitecoretestsc.dev.local, DB: master) data store. An empty source indicates that you need to fill that source with data before attempting to push it into a destination. Usually that means you need to pull an initial data set from Sitecore to fill serialized files before being able to push serialized data into Si.

  • Did you try this? dotnet sitecore login --auth https://sitecoretestidentityserver.dev.local --cm https://sitecoretestsc.dev.local --allow-write true Aug 17, 2022 at 5:27

As per the discussion, you need to update the user.json and verify that you are using HTTPS in host and authority. So they should look like this.

"host": "https://sitecoretestsc.dev.local", 
"authority": "https://sitecoretestidentityserver.dev.local",

Also, you need to verify that the path variable that you have provided in the module.json contains the correct Sitecore content tree path.

This will resolve the issue.
