Caused by: java.io.IOException: Not Found

Note the underlying cause exception is shown as:

Caused by: java.io.IOException: Not Found

Cause

The List name entered in the macro doesn't exist or incorrectly written. The common mistake is that when, let's say, you have a list in SharePoint:

Then you entered the following as the List name in SharePoint List macro {sp-list}:

Doc%20Lib%20List/Forms/AllItems.aspx

Resolution

You will need to enter the List name instead of the List path from the SharePoint URL. For example, from the sample above, you will need to enter Doc Lib List as the list name when inserting SharePoint List macro {sp-list}.
