Symptoms

Trying to import a Page Group fails:


1)
Precheck failed for PAGE B
ORA-01436: CONNECT BY loop in user data ORA-06512: at
"PORTAL.WWUTL_APP_EXPORT_IMPORT", line 2291 ORA-06512: at "PORTAL.WWUTL_APP_EXPORT_IMPORT", line 1902 ORA-06512: at "PORTAL.WWUTL_API_IMPORT_PAGEGROUP", line 31962 ORA-06510: PL/SQL:
unhandled user-defined exception

PAGE B MAIN_ROOT PAGE PAGE/MAIN_ROOT/SubPage1/SubPage2/SubPage3/PAGE B/

After this message PABE B was deleted to see wat would happen. The error was then on another page.

2)
Precheck failed for PAGE C
ORA-01436: CONNECT BY loop in user data ORA-06512: at
"PORTAL.WWUTL_APP_EXPORT_IMPORT", line 2291 ORA-06512: at "PORTAL.WWUTL_APP_EXPORT_IMPORT", line 1902 ORA-06512: at "PORTAL.WWUTL_API_IMPORT_PAGEGROUP", line 31962 ORA-06510: PL/SQL:
unhandled user-defined exception

PAGE C MAIN_ROOT PAGE PAGE/MAIN_ROOT/SubPage1/SubPage2/SubPage3/PAGE C/

3)
Precheck failed for PAGE D
ORA-01436: CONNECT BY loop in user data ORA-06512: at
"PORTAL.WWUTL_APP_EXPORT_IMPORT", line 2291 ORA-06512: at
"PORTAL.WWUTL_APP_EXPORT_IMPORT", line 1902 ORA-06512: at
"PORTAL.WWUTL_API_IMPORT_PAGEGROUP", line 31962 ORA-06510: PL/SQL:
unhandled user-defined exception

PAGE D MAIN_ROOT PAGE PAGE/MAIN_ROOT/SubPage1/SubPage2/SubPage3/PAGE D/


...and so on. With each import attempt, the precheck fails on a different page in the Page Group.


The errors seem to be coming from an External Object: EXT Page Group.
The pagegroup to be imported, MAIN, normally has no relation with EXT.
Starting a new Transport Set for MAIN, EXT is shown in the list of external objects but is not selected.
When the Transport Set is finished EXT is back in the set.

Almost everything from EXT (on the source) has been removed. But it still appears in External Objects in the Transport Set.
