Last updated on MAY 18, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

WebCenter Content (WCC, formerly Universal Content Management or UCM) is using OracleTextSearch as the search collection.  Role ACLs are used on the content items.

A piece of content is checked in with certain roles on the Role ACL.  Only users having one of those roles should be able to find and view this content item; however, other users with similar roles are also able to see the content.
