An Image Copied From MS-Word Into a Wiki Is Visible On Local Client PC Only (Doc ID 1549249.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.1.0 to 11.1.1.7.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

An image is saved in a MS Word document using the Insert -> Picture option.
In WebCenter Spaces -> Documents Explorer, create a  new Wiki or edit an existing Wiki file .
Copy and paste this image from the MS word document into the Wiki file. The image is visible.
Switch to another client PC, login as the same user or any other user. This image is not seen.

This is because the generated HTML points to a local file.
We can see this if we view the underlying HTML.

 i.e. the image is added using a local path for this local machine.
