Or it may be the other way around, that these routes should work but doesn't. Anyhow, there is a mismatch between the view helper and the route resolver.
See my SO post here, where I encounter the issue: http://stackoverflow.com/q/11536962/923847

I have a route like this:

'xmlcoverage' => array(
        'type'    => 'segment',
        'options' => array(
                'route' => '/xml/coverage[/:action][/:id]',
                'constraints' => array(
                        'action' => '[a-zA-Z][a-zA-Z0-9_-]*',
                        'id'     => '[0-9]+',
                'defaults' => array(
                        'controller' => 'modulename/xmlcoverage',
                        'action'     => 'index',

I use the url view helper like this:

$this->url('xmlcoverage', array('action' => 'index', 'id' => $someid))

This gives me xml/coverage/33 which crashes. "The requested controller was unable to dispatch the request."
I believe an id after the controller should map to index action, but it does not. But if it does not, at least the url helper
should make the url work, like xml/coverage/index/33


This issue was ported from the ZF2 Jira Issue Tracker at

Known GitHub users mentioned in the original message or comment:


I went around this issue with
public function notFoundAction()
$view = new ViewModel($this->indexAction());
return $view;

However, I'm no longer experiencing this issue.

Thanks @Matsemann


Then you should provide a non-working example in a new issue or this one (and if this one, reopen it).
