Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter - Version: 11.1.1.4.0 and later   [Release: 11g and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In a WebCenter 11.1.1.4 Installation, when using the Document Manager Taskflow, the following problem is encountered :-

If the 'Properties' Feature is disabled, then it is NOT possible to maintain the item level security on the folder. This is because the Item Level Security Options are visible on the Properties link.

The expectation is that if the properties is disabled the following should occur :-
1) no properties option
2) Item Level Security at folder level should be still available


Steps to reproduce :-
0. Enable Item Level Security

Create Space and Page and see default behaviour
---------------
1. Create Space
2. Create page in the space and add Document Explorer Task Flow
3. Upload a file, then click on the file and see that the option to view/edit the properties is available, then the option to edit the Security is available for the file from the File Menu.
4. Create a new folder, then click on the folder and see that the option to view the properties is available, then the option to edit the Security is available for the folder from the File Menu.

Disable the Edit Properties feature
---------------
5. Edit the Document Explorer Instance, and set the "Features Off" flag to "properties" -- This should disable the properties link according to docs.
