It's a permission issue that started on Sitecore 9. You have to add this section to your Web.config. <location path="sitecore/shell/WebService"> <system.web> <authorization> <allow users="?,*" /> </authorization> </system.web> </location> Please, read this blog post from Rob ...

As Geoff already pointed out; the package seems to contain content for a database called "live". You can see (and remove, if you want) this by opening the package file. I'm using WinRAR for this example: When opening up the package archive, you will find package.zip. And opening that up, you will find a structure like this: The "items" folder is the one ...

You can use below powershell script (https://gist.github.com/marcduiker/950e0358bb4752ed5b047931a8c958c1) : # This is the ID of the workflow that will be set on the content items. $script:workflowID = "{A5BC37E7-ED96-4C1E-8590-A26E64DB55EA}" #Sample Workflow # This is the ID of the workflow state that will be set on the content items. $script:...

Short answer is no. But you can update the code of Sitecore Rocks on GitHub. I have investigated a bit and saw that Sitecore Rocks only uses the item name. At the namespace Sitecore.Rocks.ContentTrees.Items.ItemTreeViewItem, you will see in the constructor that the Text property used to display on the Content Tree Pane is assigned the item name. Please ...

I haven't personally used it yet, but I was able to connect successfully Sitecore Rocks with a Sitecore instance running on a cm service container following these steps: 1) If not done yet, add a volume to your cm container service to map the container C:\src folder used by the Watch-Directory script to deploy files in the Sitecore instance. For example: ...

You need to set your Sitecore Rocks connection up using the Hard Rock Service: This will then give access to additional features and options, including the "Design Template" option: By comparison, using the Good Old Web Service, the options are as follows: The above is using Sitecore Rocks v2.1.69 and Visual Studio 2015. You mention you have set it up in ...

This is actually done by design. If you read http://helix.sitecore.net/principles/visual-studio/index.html. You will see that by having one Sitecore Rocks reference, it would create one huge reference, not allowing for the projects to be opened separately. This goes against the approach that Habitat is promoting of "your architecture should always have ...

Your solution can be found here: https://blog.mastykarz.nl/installed-visual-studio-extension-doesnt-work/ The reason for your problem is the setting of Visual Studio which disallows loading per user extensions while running as administrator.

My sitecore instance had redirects to https and allowed https only. Change your Host Name to https://events.tac.local:433

You probably didn't connect your Visual Studio project to the Sitecore instance. You can do this via: right click on your Visual Studio project in the Solution Explorer -> Sitecore -> Project Properties -> Select a "Sitecore Explorer Connection". Then you can click "Test..." to see if your connection works. Note: This is not the same as the connection to ...

Please look on changelog of Sitecore Rocks Github Repository. Looks like you don't need on this version ‘Sitecore.Rocks.Lucene*.dlls. Please make a new install of the module and see if you still have the error. If you still have please delete Sitecore.Rocks.Lucene*.dlls and other dll that are not needed anymore. https://github.com/JakobChristensen/...

Reproducable Issue I have been able to reproduce your issue in Sitecore Rocks, using your setup. The problem that you are experiencing is that the "Sample Item" template is missing from your installation. On a working environment, you should have the following template displaying in Sitecore Rocks: Upon inspecting this template, you will see that ...

I found the solution uninstall Rocks delete C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_c2d19173\privateregistry.bin and privateregistry.user.bin file (please backup them first) reinstall Rocks start Visual Studio and problem should be solved

My gut is that it's something to do with this ID reported in your logs: {76036F5E-CBCE-46D1-AF0A-4143F9B557AA} You should be able to search for this data template in your master database using the content editor. If you can't find it, I would then switch to the web database and search there as well. If the item is in the web but not master, check your ...

Here is a powershell script to update all templates standard values. Just update the guid and the path to your templates. Note that you can easily enhance this script to adapt for existing items on the content tree as well. This should get you going: $templates = Get-ChildItem -Path "/sitecore/templates/My Project Templates" -Recurse | Where-Object { $_....

Sitecore Rocks have deprecated support for Visual Studio 2010 and 2012. Currently, the minimum version Sitecore Rocks integrates with is Visual Studio 2015. Sitecore Rocks no longer supports Visual Studio 2013 as Microsoft has not made the Visual Studio 2013 SDK available on NuGet. Sitecore Rocks integrates directly with Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 ...

One of my colleagues helped to find a solution! Press right button of the mouse on connection -> Connections -> Edit connection properties and then uncheck "UseDefaultWebProxy". In some reason it was set by default. UPD When you uncheck "UseDefaultWebProxy" you can have another bug - exception when you try to delete some item (template). To fix this use ...

I do not believe that is right. The TDS projects will only deploy TDS to your website if you select Deploy Solution from the solution menu. In that can you can remove the deploy column checkbox from the configuration menu.

According to the GitHub repository for Sitecore.Rocks, the only files installed into Sitecore by the Sitecore.Rocks extension are these: Browse.aspx Service2.asmx Service2.asmx.cs (codefile, not deployed) Sitecore.Rocks.Validation.ashx Sitecore.Rocks.Validation.ashx.cs (codefile, not deployed) Reference: https://github.com/JakobChristensen/...

Faced the same issue in Sitecore 9.3, permissions changing did not help. Resolved it by adding "https://" before my host name.

This should no longer be an issue as of Sitecore Rocks 2.1.126, which is now available on the Visual Studio Marketplace, if you install the latest Hard Rocks service. It now includes a local Web.config which will do the necessary security configuration for both the Hard Rocks and Good Old web services. If you need to use the Good Old service for some reason,...

Confirmed that this is hardcoded in a couple locations of Rocks: ItemTreeViewItem MyItemsTreeViewItemBase It's a rather unfriendly message though and with proper use of async I would think that we could avoid making Visual Studio "grumpy" and the need for this message at all. Perhaps some pagination instead, though UX-wise that's hard to do in a tree. At ...
