Resources In Webcenter Portal Disappear After Redeployment Of New Version

(Doc ID 1343209.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

If a WebCenter Portal application has been customized at Run Time (RT), new pages, new resources (Administration -> Resources), the new resources are lost after a new deployment or a redeployment of the same application.  There is no easy way to recover them.
The pages created at Run Time are still in-place with those deleted resources, eg, they still use the Run Time created resources, even if they don't show anymore in the Administration -> Resources tab.

This happens only if the application version or the deployment version is changed during the redeployment of the application, either in EM or via WLST.

Changes

Redeploy the WebCenter application when the application version or the deployment version is changed.
