An Un-inherited Subspace Is Still Using The Parent Security Model In OPSS (Doc ID 1640486.1)

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



There is a subspace that used to be an inherited subspace of its parent, but was subsequently un-inherited.
In Webcenter Spaces the properties for this subspace are correct - we see only one member, as expected.
However, when querying the roles in Weblogic Enterprise Manager an additional group is shown.
The role shows that the subspace still has an additional group associated with it. This group was from the original parent space.
This means there is a mis-match between the Spaces information for this Subspace and the Roles in Enterprise Manager.

This is seen for a specific space and is not reproducible when the same steps are carried out for other spaces.

This issue was seen on  a WebCenter Portal Spaces 11.1.1.6 environment integrated with OID for authentication and Policy Store, but it could also potentially be seen on other versions with other authentication providers.
