Information in this document applies to any platform.


A WebCenter Spaces application is being migrated. There is an issue with the documents service (which is enabled on a group space template).

- Configured Spaces
- Created a group space that will be used as basis for a group space template. This is a fully configured group space, incl. roles and pages. This group space also has a 'Documents' tab (using a connection to UCM).
- Created a group space template from the group space described in the previous step.
To test if everything works as expected, a new group space was created based on the template. This all works fine, including the 'Documents' tab.

After the export/import:
- The WebCenter application (Spaces) was exported from EM. For exporting, the following options were selected: 'include customizations' and 'include security policy'.
- After importing the exported Spaces application the original group space and template exists in the destination environment.
When opening the original group space in the source environment, or after creating a new group space from the template,the 'Documents' tab has disappeared. In the 'Settings' tab, under 'Services' the 'Documents' service is not checked.

Is this normal?
