Thursday, December 18, 2014 Rejected empty referrer header for POST request -Adobe Experience Manager(AEM) Rejected empty referrer header for POST request - Adobe Experience Manager(AEM)

We will receive the following exception while testing the Adobe Experience Manager(AEM) POST Servlets from Rest client.

15.12.2014 22:55:01.434 *INFO* [0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1 [1418664301434] POST /services/EmailServlet HTTP/1.1] Rejected empty 
referrer header for POST request to /services/EmailServlet

This error is is due to the Apache Sling Referrer Filter will not allow empty Referer address by default.

For testing purpose, we can allow empty referrer by changing the Apache Sling Referrer Filter.

Apache Sling Referrer Filter configuration

Go to the Felix Console - http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr
Search for "Apache Sling Referrer Filter"
Select "Allow Empty"

This should be only enabled for testing purpose in dev environment.
