Docker quickstart - ERROR on portal /apis/ page

Hi there,

I have just installed Tyk on a cloud instance following the Docker Quickstart guide (

In my case points directly to the portal (I changes ‘/portal/’ to ‘/’ in portal_root_path).

I have successfully configured an API, a policy and published it. I access with no problem to the portal home page, but while accessing to the /apis/ path to see the portal’s catalog, an error occured. Server returns ‘Application Error’, and the container log shows :

URL: /5822fcd3b066da0001000001/portal/apis/
ERROR: interface conversion: interface {} is nil, not *main.PortalModelPortalConfig

The stack trace confirms an error in the app router.

What did I miss ?

Thank you in advance for your help !

off topic : I am very enthusiastic with my first glance at Tyk. Tyk’s guys make a great job !

Okay…Sorry for this request. I missed the reason in the log entries :

time="Nov  9 11:10:01" level=error msg="No portal configuration found, please create a new portal configuratin" 

After an ‘update’ of portal settings, everything works fine.
