Migrating Folders_g to FrameworkFolders ( (Doc ID 2309997.1)

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


Oracle WebCenter Content offers two folder solutions: Folders_g and FrameworkFolders. The Folders_g component (aka the Contribution Folders interface) provides a hierarchical folder interface to content on Content Server. The FrameworkFolders component (aka the Folders interface) also provides a hierarchical folder interface similar to a conventional file system, for organizing and locating some or all of the content in the repository. Also, Folders is a scalable, enterprise solution and is designed to replace Contribution Folders as the folder service for Content Server.

For a completely new installation of Oracle WebCenter Portal, it is recommended that you enable the FrameworkFolders component on Content Server to harness the improved performance and new Content Server features. For an Oracle WebCenter Portal instance patched from an earlier version that used the Folders_g folder service, Oracle recommends that you enable the FrameworkFolders component. A prerequiste to upgrading from WebCenter Spaces 11g to WebCenter Portal 12c is that Folders_g folder service must be migrated to FrameworkFolders folder service.

Details on Migrating Folders_g to FrameworkFolders is documented in the guides to Administering Oracle WebCenter Portal in both 11g and 12c versions.

This document is a step-by-step implementation of the migration tasks performed in a internal Oracle WebCenter Portal instance.
