Wiki Search using SES Does not Return any Results - java.lang.SecurityException: No such user (Doc ID 1279633.1)

Last updated on JULY 16, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version to on JCS [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When configuring WebCenter Search with SES, the search will not return any results for Wiki.

The WLS_Spaces.out shows the following error:

<Dec 15, 2010 9:21:26 AM EST> <Warning> <> <BEA-000000> <Unable to obtain Wiki Web Service login key: java.lang.SecurityException: No such user: MYCRAWLADMIN>
<Dec 15, 2010 9:21:27 AM EST> <Warning> <oracle.jps.authorization> <JPS-03001> <Cannot instantiate permission class "null", target "null", or actions "null" as defined in the system policy context.>
<Dec 15, 2010 9:21:27 AM EST> <Error> <> <BEA-000000> <
java.lang.NullPointerException: type can't be null


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Configure SES for WebCenter as indicated here:
    Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter
    18.4 Configuring Oracle SES to Search WebCenter Spaces

  2. Configure both WebCenter and Wiki to use the same Identity Store (OiD).
