Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On WebCenter 11.1.1.6.6, when Search Taskflow is scoped to search a particular space or current space, the results for Discussions and Space Management are returned from other spaces.

The following test case demonstrates the behavior.

1. Create a space :searchscopespace1

a. create space   searchscopespace1
                  - private
                  - Portal site template
               
b. Manage - Pages : show Documents, Events, Discussions

c.  Upload a document,    d:\temp\searchscopespace1.txt
     Discussions :  Create Topic searchscope1.   and a reply
     Events : searchscope1

2. Create a page: page1  and add Search  or Search Toolbar Task Flow

a. Manage - All settings - Resources -  Resource Catalog
b. Copy Default Space Catalog
c. Show the new copy
d. Edit the copy - Add - Add from Library - Task Flows - Search
e. General tab - Resource Catalog for Pages: select the new copy
f. Create a Page and add Search taskflow


3. Create another space :searchscopespace2

   a. create space   searchscopespace2
                 - private
                 - Portal site template
                 
   b. Manage - Pages : show Documents, Events, discussions              

   c.   Upload  a document,    d:\temp\searchscopespace2.txt
        Discussions :  Create Topic searchscope2.   and reply
        Events : searchscope2

4. Identify the space GUID  ( About - This Space) :  e.g.
      
      searchscopespace1   :   scc0f408b_c98e_4085_aef4_c42192e000ab 
      searchscopespace2   :   s005c043e_d403_4458_9770_256c380321c7


Test 1 - No Search Scope defined

1. Goto  space: searchscopespace1   and Page 1,  
2. In the Search taskflow enter the string:  searchscope

   Results:  Space management:  from both spaces
                  Space event: 
from both spaces
                  Documents: from both spaces
                  Discussions: from both spaces
   
 
Test 2: Search Scope :
searchscopespace2

1. Goto  searchscopespace1,   Page 1 
2. Edit the Page and Search Task flow
3. Search taskflow: Search Scope : s548dba4e_7408_447d_b9eb_26f71d6fcde3  (This is GUID for searchscopespace2)

        The following can also be used: #{spaceContext.space['searchscope2'].metadata.guid}

4. Save the page and Search using string: searchscope
                            
   Results:  Space management: 
from both spaces (Not right)
             Space event: from searchscopespace2 (correct)
             Documents  :
from searchscopespace2 (correct)
             Discussions : from both spaces (Not right)
 
Test 3:
Search Scope : searchscopespace1

1. Goto  searchscopespace1, Page 1
2. Edit the Page and Search Task flow
3. Search taskflow: Search Scope : s709ee4a0_b5e7_4dea_a263_945277960f3f  (
This is GUID for searchscopespace21)

        The following can also be used:

                  #{spaceContext.currentSpaceGUID}  or
                  #{spaceContext.space['searcgscope1'].metadata.guid}

4. Save the page and Search using string: searchscope
                            
   Results:  Space management: 
from both spaces (Not right)
             Space event: from searchscopespace1 (correct)
             Documents  :
from searchscopespace1 (correct)
             Discussions : from both spaces (Not right)
 

Summary:
   Issue seems to be with Space management and Discussions only.

   This issue is not replicated when SES is configured.
