Hey fellow developers, this is a very short post 🙂
I recently got an error when trying to do a dotnet sitecore login.
Unhandled exception: System.Exception: Unhandled exception ---> System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. at Sitecore.DevEx.Configuration.FilesystemConfigurationManager.ReadRootConfiguration(Stream rootConfigurationStream, Stream userConfigurationStream, String filePath) in C:\BA\ca7111d945a16af4\src\Sitecore.DevEx.Configuration\FilesystemConfigurationManager.cs:line 82 at ...
This was indeed strange, I have never seen this before.
After tons of hair-pulling, I found the culprit. It turned out to be the user.json file in the .sitecore folder. I had to delete the user.json file, after that dotnet sitecore login worked like a charm(created a new user.json file)
That’s all for now folks 😊
