CQ3.X/4.X to CQ5.3: Upgrade tool "Add Page to Upgrade" link is broken


When I attempt to use the CQ5 Upgrade Tool to migrate content from CQ3.X or CQ4.X to CQ5.3 then the Add Page to Upgrade link is broken.


The broken link for Add Page to Upgrade is due to an issue with the configuration of the Link Checker in 5.3.

Please change the "Link Check Override Patterns" from ^system/ to ^http://[^/]*/system/ in this configuration: http://<host>:<port>/system/console/configMgr/com.day.cq.rewriter.linkchecker.impl.LinkCheckerImpl

and also change the same configuration in CRX:

  1. Log into the /crx webapp as admin
  2. Open CRX Explorer
  3. Copy /libs/cq/linkchecker/config.author/com.day.cq.rewriter.linkchecker.impl.LinkCheckerImpl to /apps/<myapp>/config.author/com.day.cq.rewriter.linkchecker.impl.LinkCheckerImpl (where <myapp> is the name of your application)
  4. Change the value of property /apps/<myapp>/config.author/com.day.cq.rewriter.linkchecker.impl.LinkCheckerImpl/service.check_override_patterns from ^system/ to ^http://[^/]*/system/
  5. Save changes by clicking the Save All button
