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



A user with ILS viewer permissions assigned at the parent folder is able to move a sub-folder into another sub-folder.

The Viewer group is assigned the Viewer role through space membership.
ILS is set on the parent folder at the first level of the space folder.
All sub folders in the tree are set to "inherit" the permissions of the parent folder.

The Viewer permissions at the subfolder level prevents the user to add or delete content and folders.
However, the user is able to drag one folder into another.

The issue is specific for one Portal.


Expect the user is not able to move a sub-folder into another sub-folder.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Connect to WebCenter Portal as a user with View Permissions in the affected Portal.

  2. Try to add or delete content to any sub-folder will fail as expected.

  3. Drag one folder into another under the parent folder works.
    This is unexpected.
