Users added to Space as Users rather than Group : Group Shredding is enabled

(Doc ID 1464996.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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


When an OID Group is granted access to a WC Group Space, only the current users of the OID Group are permitted that access.
Any subsequent changes to the group (E.g. adding or removing users) are not reflected in Webcenter

Steps to reproduce:
1. Login to webcenter
2. Go to Administration
3. Edit a space
4. Go to member
5. Select Add Groups
When the group is selected (OID is the external LDAP) the users in the group are added individually, not the group.
Adding a new user to the group, the user is not shown in Webcenter.


Check the WebCenter Spaces log and you will see similar to the following:
