When configuring WebCenter Search with SES,
the search will not return any results for Wiki.
The WLS_Spaces.out shows the following error:
<Dec 16, 2010 12:52:35 PM 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 16, 2010 12:52:35 PM EST> <Error> <oracle.webcenter.search.crawl.model.util.ServicePermissionUtils> <BEA-000000> <
java.lang.NullPointerException: type can't be null
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
- 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
- Configure both WebCenter and Wiki to use the same Identity Store (OiD).
