Fix for index not found error while installing Commerce Connect 7.2

I found a missing step in the Sitecore Commerce Connect 7.2 Installation Guide that I’d like to share:

On step 5 of the “Integrating an External Commerce System – Creating a Product Repository” guide you are instructed to Synchronize All Products, however when I reached this step I received the following error:


Upon further inspection in the Sitecore log file, I found the following:

Exception: System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException
Message: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

Nested Exception

at Sitecore.Commerce.Services.Products.ProductSynchronizationProvider.RunPipelineBody[TRequest,TResult](String pipelineName, TRequest request)
at Sitecore.Commerce.Services.Products.ProductSynchronizationProvider.SynchronizeProducts(SynchronizationRequest request)

There is an easy fix for this, simply enable your “Sitecore.Commerce.Products.Lucene.Index.Master.config” file and verify all of its settings.


Once completed, re-run the product synchronization tool and you can continue with the rest of your Sitecore Commerce Connect 7.2 installation.
