Sitecore MVC best practice Avoid Multiple types were found that match the controller

Scenario


Pre- production cleanup and performance improvement. In terms of security and performance optimization, sitecore logs, iis logs, http sys logs or event logs are best place to look upon. It give detailed behavour of application in terms of errors, redundant calls and other user specific details that are security threats. Having said that keeping production environment clean is good for application overall health. Below is the one of the example that we may ignore. This can be viewed in event logs mostly.


Event Log

Multiple types were found that match the controller named 'Authentication'. This can happen if the route that services this request ('sitecore/shell/api/sitecore/{controller}/{action}') does not specify namespaces to search for a controller that matches the request. If this is the case, register this route by calling an overload of the 'MapRoute' method that takes a 'namespaces' parameter. The request for 'Authentication' has found the following matching controllers: Sitecore.Controllers.AuthenticationController My.MVC.Areas.MyAPI.Controllers.Api.AuthenticationController at System.Web.Mvc.DefaultControllerFactory.GetControllerTypeWithinNamespaces(RouteBase route, String controllerName, HashSet`1 namespaces) at System.Web.Mvc.DefaultControllerFactory.GetControllerType(RequestContext requestContext, String controllerName) at System.Web.Mvc.DefaultControllerFactory.System.Web.Mvc.IControllerFactory.GetControllerSessionBehavior(RequestContext requestContext, String controllerName) at Sitecore.Mvc.Controllers.SitecoreControllerFactory.GetControllerSessionBehavior(RequestContext requestContext, String controllerName) at System.Web.Mvc.MvcRouteHandler.GetSessionStateBehavior(RequestContext requestContext) at System.Web.Mvc.MvcRouteHandler.GetHttpHandler(RequestContext requestContext) at System.Web.Mvc.MvcRouteHandler.System.Web.Routing.IRouteHandler.GetHttpHandler(RequestContext requestContext) at Sitecore.Mvc.Routing.RouteHandlerWrapper.GetHttpHandler(RequestContext requestContext) at System.Web.Routing.UrlRoutingModule.PostResolveRequestCache(HttpContextBase context) at System.Web.Routing.UrlRoutingModule.OnApplicationPostResolveRequestCache(Object sender, EventArgs e) at System.Web.HttpApplication.SyncEventExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication.IExecutionStep.Execute() at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)

BottomLine

Never use sitecore or .net intrinsic names for controller
