You can disable the ErrorMvcAutoConfiguration :

@EnableAutoConfiguration(exclude = {ErrorMvcAutoConfiguration.class})
public class SpringBootLauncher {

Or through Spring Boot's application.yml/properties:

spring.autoconfigure.exclude: org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.web.ErrorMvcAutoConfiguration

If this is not an option for you, you may also extend Spring's ErrorController with your own implementation:

public class MyErrorController implements ErrorController {

    private static final String ERROR_MAPPING = "/error";

    @RequestMapping(value = ERROR_MAPPING)
    public ResponseEntity<String> error() {
        return new ResponseEntity<String>(HttpStatus.NOT_FOUND);

    public String getErrorPath() {
        return ERROR_MAPPING;
