I am trying to configure a publishing target in Sitecore 9. I took the same steps I used to take in Sitecore 8, but it did not work. What I did:

  • \App_Config\ConnectionStrings.config - contains the new connection strings to the web database
  • /sitecore/system/Publishing targets – targets are listed
  • \App_Config\Include\Sitecore.config - I add :
<database id="web2" singleInstance="true" type="Sitecore.Data.DefaultDatabase, Sitecore.Kernel" role:require="Standalone or Reporting or ContentManagement or ContentDelivery">
  <param desc="name">$(id)</param>
  <dataProviders hint="list:AddDataProvider">
    <dataProvider ref="dataProviders/main" param1="$(id)">
      <prefetch hint="raw:AddPrefetch">
        <sc.include file="/App_Config/Prefetch/Common.config" />
        <sc.include file="/App_Config/Prefetch/Webdb.config" />
  <PropertyStore ref="PropertyStoreProvider/store[@name='$(id)']" />
    <obj ref="eventing/eventQueueProvider/eventQueue[@name='$(id)']" />
  <archives hint="raw:AddArchive">
    <archive name="archive" />
    <archive name="recyclebin" />
  <cacheSizes hint="setting">

but i receive these errors :

Could not find configuration node: PropertyStoreProvider/store[@name='web2']

Could not find configuration node: eventing/eventQueueProvider/eventQueue[@name='web2']

You should add the missing nodes in your config. Sitecore has added these things in the database config in Sitecore9. So in your case -for a "web2" database-, add:

<eventing defaultProvider="sitecore">
  <eventQueueProvider defaultEventQueue="core">
    <eventQueue name="web2" type="Sitecore.Data.Eventing.$(database)EventQueue, Sitecore.Kernel">
      <param ref="dataApis/dataApi[@name='$(database)']" param1="$(name)" />
      <param hint="" ref="PropertyStoreProvider/store[@name='$(name)']" />


<PropertyStoreProvider defaultStore="core">
  <store name="web2" prefix="web2" getValueWithoutPrefix="true" singleInstance="true" type="Sitecore.Data.Properties.$(database)PropertyStore, Sitecore.Kernel">
    <param ref="dataApis/dataApi[@name='$(database)']" param1="$(name)" />
    <param resolve="true" type="Sitecore.Abstractions.BaseEventManager, Sitecore.Kernel" />
    <param resolve="true" type="Sitecore.Abstractions.BaseCacheManager, Sitecore.Kernel" />

Haven't been able to fully test this (yet), but this should work.

  • its worked after applying it , but can anyone explain what these extra configuration meant specially PropertyStoreProvider Commented Dec 29, 2017 at 11:08
  • The PropertyStoreProvider seems to be a way to configure how the "Properties" table -which has been in Sitecore for quite a while- can be used. By default it's just working on your sql database with the default caching and event queue. I guess you can now override all that if you really want to..
