Images Referenced Within CSS In Page Template Are Not Found (HTTP-404)

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


Templates in Spaces are edited to include images stored in the MDS.

background: url('/oracle/webcenter/siteresources/scopedMD/shared/images/discussions_icon.png') repeat-x scroll 0 0 transparent;

These images are not found. The pages in the Space do not show the expected image.
Also, HTTP-404 errors are seen in the access log.

e.g. GET /oracle/webcenter/siteresources/scopedMD/shared/images/discussions_icon.png HTTP/1.1" 404 1164

The URL works directly in a browser and the expected image is displayed.

Using similar HTML code, but accessing images with a direct URL which are nit stired in the MDS works fine. e.g.
 background: url('') repeat-x scroll 0 0 transparent;
