WebCenter Portal Displays Home.jspx instead of Custom Login_success Page (Doc ID 1354537.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.4.0 to 11.1.1.5.4 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


WebCenter Portal does not redirect to custom page specified in login_success of faces-config.xml. No matter what you specify there, it redirects to the home.jspx after successful login.

Steps to reproduce
==================
1. Create a starter WebCenter application

2. Create a custom page i.e. custom_page.jspx with some custom content

3. Edit faces-config.xml to change the login_success view id to point to the custom page like this:

  <navigation-case>
    <from-outcome>login_success</from-outcome>
    <to-view-id>/oracle/webcenter/portalapp/pages/custom_home.jspx</to-view-id>
    <redirect/>
  </navigation-case>



4. Execute the index.html

5. Login

6. Notice that it stays on the home.jspx rather than going to the custom_home.jspx as defined in faces-config.xml.
