Role-Based Security in Oracle WebCenter Portal Framework Application not Working

(Doc ID 1570640.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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


There is a WebCenter Portal Framework Application with pages added to the default navigation.
Security has been enabled by using menu Application->Secure->Configure ADF Security.
Once the ADF Security is enabled, it correctly locks the Root node in the default navigation.
But for the application root node and any nodes inside it, it does not show any roles to add when clicking the green plus icon in the security area for that node.
The documentation mentions to add the roles and give permissions. But roles are not appearing at all on the green plus button.
