Events Being Created By Authenticated User Show Up As Anonymous In Activity Stream (Doc ID 1584190.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.6.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Webcenter Portal 11.1.1.6.6

Logged in as a particular user in webcenter Portal, create an event and then view it in Activity Stream, it is shown as being created by user 'anonymous'.
This should not be possible because anonymous users can not create events. 

After some verification, it seems that if a user that has logged out (because of a session being terminated perhaps) and then logged back in,
will then show up as anonymous in the activity stream.

Steps :

1. Created a new space as a new user UserA (as that generates an activity in the stream as well).
2. That is shown correctly in the activity stream as UserA has created space xxx’.
3. After going back to the previous space and creating a new event, that was once again shown as ‘anonymous created the event xxx'

Looks like Community Events Service is not able to pass on the username of the user to Activity Stream service, of who created the event.
