So recently noticed a compiler warning on a custom pipeline I wrote to override what pages "Page Not Found", "Layout Not Found" get redirected to (in order to make them site specific pages in a mutlisite solution).

'ExecuteRequest.ExecuteRequest()' is obsolete: 'Use another constructor overload with dependency injection.`

Any thoughts on how to properly implement these types of redirects now?

  • ExecuteRequest Handles Layout Not Found, Site Access Denied, Redirect to Login Page, plus I give the ability to configure different custom pages at a site level, so each site can customize the page it redirects to.

  • How are you using it in code?

  • Just extending it and overriding the methods: e.g. MultiSitePageConfigurationPipeline : Sitecore.Pipelines.HttpRequest.ExecuteRequest

After taking this to Slack - here was the problem. In the base class, the default constructor is using poor mans DI to resolve the references:

[Obsolete("Use another constructor overload with dependency injection.")]
public ExecuteRequest()
  : this(ServiceLocator.ServiceProvider.GetRequiredService<BaseSiteManager>(), ServiceLocator.ServiceProvider.GetRequiredService<BaseItemManager>())

In the derived class, you need to have a constructor setup that injects the required dependencies and passes those through to the base class, like this:

public class MyDerivedClass : ExecuteRequest
    public MyDerivedClass(BaseSiteManager baseSiteManager, BaseItemManager baseItemManager)
     : this(baseSiteManager, baseItemManager)

Now the derived class is calling the new constructor in the base class and injecting the dependencies correctly.

  • This was the problem. Adding the constructor removed the compiler warning. Thanks for the help.

    The derived processor needs resolve="true" set where this patch config takes place.
