Unable to switch sites on WebSphere (Doc ID 2031752.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2021

Applies to:

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


The Sites selector dropdown on the top right does not allow the user to switch sites. At login we are taken to the last site we accessed. However if we try and switch to another site it does not work and remains on the current site.

The following error is seen in the Sites log file:
