Symptoms


ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

Users with indirect group permissions no longer have access to documents after upgrading from WebCenter Portal 11.1.1.9 with Folders_G to WebCenter Portal 12.2.1.2 with Framework Folders.

 

STEPS


Issue can be reproduced as follows:

  1. Login to WebCenter Portal as an administrator user.


  2. Go to Administer a Portal.

  3. Select Security -> Members.

  4.  Note there are Portal Permissions assigned to groups.

    e.g.:

    Member: Group1
    Role: Portal Manager

  5.  Select the group under portal members and get the members of the group.

    You will see users with indirect group permissions.

    e.g.:

    • Group2 is member of Group1.

    • Testuser1 is member of Group2.

      So Testuser1 should have Portal Manager permissions in this example.

  6.  Now login to WebCenter Portal as the user with indirect permissions.

    e.g., Testuser1 in this case.

  7.  Go the documents folder in the Portal.

    There you will see the user can see the folder but the user can't see documents or upload new documents.

    The documents upload button is disabled.

  8.  Next login to WebCenter Content US as the user with indirect permissions. 

    e.g., Testuser1 in this case.

  9.  Go to the documents folder for the Portal.

    You will see the user can see the folder but the user can't see documents or upload new documents.

    The option to add new content items is disabled.
