Deploy Application Returns Error: "oracle.mds.core.MetadataNotFoundException: MDS-00013: no metadata found for metadata object" (Doc ID 1453579.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 02, 2023

Applies to:

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


After migrating an application to an external test environment, trying to deploy the application, the (WSRP) portlets are not available and the portal complains about some metadata which does not exist.

Exporting the metadata for the portal application using Enterprise Manager and importing it did not help.


The error stack shows:
