New Topic Added To Discussions Not Visible To Other Users

(Doc ID 1633611.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

In WebCenter Portal/Spaces , after a new topic is added to discussions,  the new topic is  not displayed in the discussions task flow and between the NEXT and PREVIOUS buttons it shows "1-5 of 5" which includes the new topic.  This is not matching the number of topics listed in the task flow

The following steps demostrated the problem:

1. Browser 1: As Moderator

  Login as weblogic (moderator)
  Access a space.
  Go to discussions page.
  Create topic1

2. Browser 2 : As User

    Start another browser, Login as userA
    Go to discussions page.
    The discussion topic 1 is displayed

3. Browser 1: Create topic 2
4. Browser 2: Go to another page/tab and then back to discussions.

5. The New topic is not displayed and the count does not match.


The topic is eventually displayed after some cache timeout ( approx 1 minutes).   BUT if moving  between pages, the cache may not expire and hence the new topic will never be displayed.
