I have created a custom config entity, which declares a list_builder controller to return a list of the created entities. Before creating a config entity, it renders as expected. Once I create a config entity via its add form, which redirects back to the list_builder controller, the error is thrown. The config entity is saved, but the redirect fails.

Here's the redirect in the config entity form class's ::save() method.


Also, navigating directly to the list_builder controller path throws the same error.

Symfony\Component\Routing\Exception\RouteNotFoundException: Route "entity.config_entity_id.edit_form" does not exist. in Drupal\Core\Routing\RouteProvider->getRouteByName() (line 187 of /home/vagrant/docroot/core/lib/Drupal/Core/Routing/RouteProvider.php)

I have no idea where the route entity.config_entity_id.edit_form is coming from. How to resolve the thrown error?

  • Add the annotation of the entity class and your routing.yml file.

You have somewhere in your code the wrong route.

Probably your route in *.routing.yml is:


But now you are redirecting to


where there is still the placeholder from some example code.

    I added my form redirect in the question above. I'm redirecting to the list_builder route, which is why I can't determine how the route that does not exist is being passed on to Symfony's router. Additionally, if I navigate directly to the list_builder path, I get the same error.

    grep for the string config_entity_id, if you find it replace it with the correct id of your new config entity

    I think the route, entity.config_entity_id.edit_form, was generated dynamically from the schema definition. Changing the schema fixed the issue.
