Web Application Context is not Visible
Customers are unable to see the web application context when they open a channel in the Experience Manager.
Steps to Reproduce
- Login to CMS and navigate to Experience Manager.
- Open any of the channels available.
- There will be a blank screen visible without any context.
To solve this issue, a configuration change is required. Enable hst:showcontextpath on platform part (hst:platform host configuration).
In general, setting hst:showcontextpath=true informs the framework on what URL the site lives, e.g. on www.example.com or on www.example.com/site.
It affects both the live site as the Experience Manager. It works together with how the site is accessed through the proxy (nginx, Apache https).
If the path is completed with /cms, the channel can be loaded successfully.
