Adding Ancillary Connection From a Primary Connection Fails in WebCenter Spaces (Doc ID 1378287.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 22, 2016

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

In WebCenter Spaces,  users can connect to other users and 'friend' them (invite). Users can also mine the connections of primary 'friends' to make new connections (i.e. 'friends of friends'). However, attempts to connect to 'friends of friends' via the target friend's profile screen fail with the following message:

Error message: WCS 2011.05.05.08.58.44 : Cannot invite a user you are already connected with (<The Primary Friend>).

The error implies the attempted connection is to the original 'friend', not the 'friend of a friend'.
