Account Field is Mandatory For External Users Even Though No Rules Were Set Up To Make It A Required Field (Doc ID 1070846.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 30, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 10.0 to 10.0 [Release 10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When trying to check-in content as a (non-Admin) external user that is authenticated through AD/LDAP, you find that the Account field is mandatory even though no rules were configured to make it a required field.

Any attempt to check-in content without providing an account brings up a dialog box saying:

"Please specify an account".

Local and Admin users are able to check-in content without specifying a value for Account.
