Information in this document applies to any platform.

Purpose

Customization of BoilerPlate/ Global Toolbar region is not visible in Oracle WebCenter Spaces.

Oracle WebCenter Developers Guide:
Chapter 24: Section 24.2.1
Use Case 1: WebCenter Spaces: Add a Link to the WebCenter Spaces Global Toolbar Task Flow



Customizations are not reflected in Spaces after performing all the steps documented in the Guide above:



To verify customizations for boilerplate taskflow are propogated correctly in WebCenter MDS, execute exportMetadata to extract the customization - BoilerPlate.jsff.xml and verify if changes still exist:

exportMetadata(application='webcenter',
server='WC_Spaces',toLocation='<PATH>',docs='/oracle/webcenter/webcenterapp/view/taskflows/globalToolbar/mdssys/cust/site/webcenter/BoilerPlate.jsff.xml')



Verify customizations (BoilerPlate.jsff.xml) performed in JDev are imported correctly to MDS:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<mds:customization version="11.1.1.59.23" xmlns:mds="http://xmlns.oracle.com/mds">
<mds:insert parent="pgl51" position="first" xmlns:af="http://xmlns.oracle.com/adf/faces/rich">
