Last updated on SEPTEMBER 20, 2023

Applies to:

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


By default, when doing checkout and opens, the client will use Webdav protocol to communicate with the WebCenter Content server (formerly UCM, Universal Content Management).

When accessing the WCC from Windows 7 clients that have Office 2007 or 2010 installed, there are known issues when using Webdav that can cause items to either not get checked out or not being able to check the item back in.

This How To KM will cover an alternative to using Webdav, by using Desktop Integration that will bypass the Webdav protocol.
