Last updated on FEBRUARY 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
***Checked for relevance on 12-MAR-2013***

Symptoms

Using WebCenter Spaces 11.1.1.4.0, UCM 11.1.1.4.0 and IBR with the WebLogic Server Embedded LDAP, the user is prompted for Content Server authentication when viewing MS Doc or PDF files even though they logged in to WebCenter Spaces already.

The authentication screen is not given if the user downloads the document instead of viewing the same document. Plain text files in the same folder can be viewed without authentication from content server.   The word and pdf files are configured for conversion through IBR.
