On WebCenter Spaces, when using Site Studio regions/elements in Content Presenter template, the data related Site Studio elements (from the Contributor Data File) is not displayed in the Content Presenter task flow after the Site Studio Region is changed.

The following steps demonstrates the problem.

With reference to:

   Tutorial: Configuring Site Studio for use with Content Presenter in Oracle WebCenter R11 (PS3/PS4) <>
1. In Site Studio, create element of  type plain text,   Name: plaintext1  
2. In Site Studio, create region,  Name: PLAINREGION
3. In Site Studio, edit region, add element to region.   
                       Name: body1    (mapped to  plaintext1)

4. From browser: Create contributor data file (CDF) using the url  http://<HOST>:<PORT>/cs/resources/wcm/custom/sitestudio/contentwizard/webcenter/contentwizard.hcsp
      (Make note of the folder  this file is checked-in to. This will be required in step 8).

5. Create Content Presenter Template from JDeveoper and import Content Presenter Template into Spaces  (uploaded file can be used to import)

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<jsp:root xmlns:jsp="" version="2.1" xmlns:af="" xmlns:dt="" xmlns:f="" xmlns:c="" xmlns:adfp="" xmlns:fn="" xmlns:tr="">
   <dt:contentTemplateDef var="node">
      <af:outputText value="#{node.propertyMap['PLAINREGION:body1'].asTextHtml}"

6. Create Space/Page in WebCenter Spaces.

7. Add Content Presenter task flow.

8.  Edit task flow
      - Select Single Item content and select the Contributor Data File created above in step 4)
      - Template:   Select the template imported above (step 5)

9. Save and view page.   The data is displayed correctly.

10. Change Contributor Data File  using  http://<HOST>:<PORT>/cs/resources/wcm/custom/sitestudio/contentwizard/webcenter/contentwizard.hcsp
      (with coherence configured for 1 min cache expiry).  New content displayed after 1 min.
      For cohenence configuration, refer

The Problem
1. In Site Studio, create another element, plain text, name: plaintext2
2. In Site Studio, edit region, add new element to region.   
                    Name: body2    (mapped to  plaintext2)

3. From Spaces Administration, edit and change  Content Presenter Template to display new element:
      <af:outputText value="#{node.propertyMap['PLAINREGION:body2'].asTextHtml}" id="ot2"/>
4.  Edit contributor Data File using http://machine:16200/cs/resources/wcm/custom/sitestudio/contentwizard/webcenter/contentwizard.hcsp
     Add new data  for body2
