Symptoms

Using either the Basic or Advanced search within Oracle WebCenter Spaces or/and Oracle WebCenter Portal taskflows (Document Viewer, Content Presenter, etc) always returns this value:

"No documents were found."
** OR **
"No documents or folders were found."

The criteria entered should return some documents.
Using a similar search in UCM returns the expected documents.


Example from Content Presenter taskflow

1. Create a Space
2. Make sure that Documents service is enabled for the Space, within the General Settings -> Services
3. Under the Pages make sure the Documents page is shown
4. Within the Documents page, upload a document - ex: ucm_search.JPG
5. Go to the Home page (CTRL+SHIFT+E) and add the Content Presenter taskflow
6. Click on the wrench of Content Presenter taskflow
