WCC - Multiselect List Option Values with DCL are Not Appearing when a Document is Updated (Doc ID 1902818.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 05, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When the document is updated, multiselect option list values are not listed on the update form. The metadata field is part of a Dynamic Choice List (DCL), the options available are dependent on another metadata field. There are red X's for each value but there is nothing listed. The Option List values have to be re-added for any document updates. If the user clicks on 'Reset' the values are added back to the update form. This issue started happening after applying MLR 15 OPatch.

Here is how to reproduce:

Customer has a two level DCL.
The parent metadata field is the DocType.
The child metadata field is the TestMulti.

The child metadata field is a Multiselect List.

When a user goes to update a document the Multiselect List does not show the values with the red X. The values selected are blank. If the user clicks on 'Reset' the values show up.

Test system with MLR 17.

The default value is set to 'All' when the document is updated the option
from the list 'All' is not selected.

1. Create a metadata field: TestMulti

2. Create a table: TestMultiTable
Description: TestMultiTable
Add Column: Value, varchar, 100, PK

3. Create a View: TestMultiView
