DIS Update Metadata Option Fails With "You Have Insufficient Privileges To Change The Author" (Doc ID 1931148.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 11.1.1.8.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In Desktop Integrations Suite (DIS) the update functions, i.e. right click on content item and select update metadata, will fail with insufficient privileges to change the author.  The update will automatically change the dDocAuthor to the logged in user name even when the logged in user is different from the document author - the dDocAuthor name should remain the same as only the metadata has changed.
