AppServerHost does not exist...


I've made a potalapplication, but whenever I want to view it in my browser I get this error:

[InvalidOperationException: The key 'Destination1.AppServerHost' does not exist in the appSettings configuration section.]

System.Configuration.AppSettingsReader.GetValue(String key, Type type) +467


Search.PortalComponent1.OnInit(EventArgs e)

System.Web.UI.Control.InitRecursive(Control namingContainer) +233

System.Web.UI.Control.AddedControl(Control control, Int32 index) +185

System.Web.UI.ControlCollection.Add(Control child) +153

SAP.Portal.Web.UI.PageComponent.OnLoad(EventArgs e) +152

System.Web.UI.Control.LoadRecursive() +27

System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain() +731

What have I done wrong???

Thanks in advance

    You are using a component that tries to read data from Web.config - which is not possible in a portal app. Most likely it's a component that has some properties mapped as so called dynamic properties: check the controls'/ components' properties if you see a cyan colored icon beneath the property name. Unbind the property.

    For the case that you are trying to use a SAP .NET Conector Destination (which automatically binds some properties): Don't use it but instead use the special PortalDestiantion.
