Last updated on JUNE 17, 2022

Applies to:

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


In Content UI with Dependent Choice List(DCL), values are not listed in the child field even after choosing a value in the parent field.
(In Native UI, the child values are shown expectedly under the same scenario .)

When the issue happens, you can find below messages in the Content Server log.



 The issue occurs when the column of the relationship for DCL is set something
other than Parent View's internal column .

For example, you can reproduce the issue with the following steps.

  1. Login the Native UI as an administrator.
  2. Open "Admin Applets" in the "Administration" tab, then launch Configuration Manager applet.
  3. Open "Views" tab and create 2 views as following:
    View Name:testParentView
    tc_id label
    1 Database
    2 Middleware

    View Name:testChildView
    tcl_id tc_id label
    1 1 Database Standard Edition
    2 1 Database Enterprise Edition
    3 2 WebLogic Server
    4 2 WebCenter Content
  4. Open "Relations" tab and add a relationship.
    Relationship Name:Parent2Child
      Parent Info Child Info
    table testParentView testChildView
    column tc_id tc_id
  5. Back to "Views" tab, select "testParentView" and click [Edit].
  6. Open "Info" tab and set the columns as following:
      - Internal Column = label
      - Visible Column = label
    Then click [OK].
  7. On the "Views" tab, select "testChildView" and click [Edit].
  8. Open "Info" tab and set the columns of the child view as following:
