SXA sitemap returns a 404 error after an application restart


With SXA, a request to the sitemap.xml page might result in a 404 HTTP error after an application restart.

This issue affects SXA 1.8.1 - 9.3.0 versions.


To resolve the issue, download and install the hotfix or the patch compatible with the affected product version:

Be aware that hotfixes were built for specific Sitecore XP and SXA versions, and must not be installed on other Sitecore XP versions or in combination with other hotfixes. In case any other hotfixes have already been installed on a certain Sitecore XP instance, send a request for a compatibility check to Sitecore Support.

Note that the ZIP file contents need to be extracted to locate installation instructions and related files inside. The hotfixes must be installed on a CM instance and then synced with other instances using standard development practices.
