Application Role not Found While Migrating an Entire Webcenter Spaces Application

(Doc ID 1323648.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter - Version: and later   [Release: 11g and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


While trying to import spaces using Enterprise Manager -> webcenter -> webcenter spaces -> WLS_spaces -> Application import. Put in the ear from the application export.
It runs for 10-15 minutes and finally ends with the following error:

Application Import Failed

Failed to complete the import process.
application Role: MAAR not found for the application in the destination policy store

Where MAAR is part of a custom role name. So it could be another name.

The WebCenter documenation was followed:

Oracle® Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter
11g Release 1 (11.1.1)
Section - 25.1 Exporting and Importing WebCenter Spaces for Data Migration
