WCSecurityContext.userInScopedRole Does not Return the Correct Value (Doc ID 1422228.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version: 11.1.1.5.0 and later   [Release: 11g and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


Using the following EL to know if a user is member of a role:

#{ WCSecurityContext.userInScopedRole['Moderator'] }


As a Moderator of the Space it returns true.
But when a sub space is created and inherits the role and members from parent, the same EL returns false (even if I am a moderator for the parent space).

Now if unchecking the Inherit security form Parent on the General setting page of the Sub Space, then it works as expected.
