Users Are Able to Access Non-Approved Documents In Workflow in WebCenter Portal (Doc ID 2107170.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Files are being exposed that are pending review within WebCenter Content workflows.  If a user checks in a new revision of a document,  the file in that folder gets replaced immediately even though the workflow has not completed. This causes the search result's URL / Direct Access URL to return the unapproved document to other users in WebCenter Portal.   We can not have users seeing content that is not approved.
