Site Capture Icon Is Not Showing Up In Sites UI Due To HTTP Response 404

(Doc ID 1595619.1)

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


After integrating Site Capture with Sites, the Site Capture application icon is not showing up in Sites UI.

Use a 3rd party tool to monitor the HTTP request/response headers, you will see 404 responses.

For example:


In the above example, Sites is installed on http://sites_hostname:7003/cs/ , and Site Capture on http://sc_hostname:7003/ .

You can see that Site Capture URLs used by Site Capture's FW_Application are interpreted as relative URLs so they are prepended with Sites URL (http://sites_hostname:port/cs/).


The issue only occurs when:

 - Site Capture is using a hostname without a dot (.) and

 - Sites and Site Capture are running on different machines.
