Every two days users are receiving Portlet Consumer Error in a custom framework portal.  The log shows:

29-Oct-2017 19:23:34 o'clock CET> <Error> <oracle.portlet.binding> <BEA-000000> <An error has occurred for Portlet Binding <portlet_name>.
oracle.adf.model.portlet.binding.PortletBindingException: Unable to get portlet response for portlet instance ID /oracle/adf/portlet/<WsrpPortletProducer>/ap/<portlet_name> for portlet binding <portlet_name>_1.


Restarting the WC_Spaces managed servers solves the issue for a while but will re-occur. Also clearing the MDS cache fixes the issue temporarily:

Navigate Application Defined MBeans -> oracle.mds.lcm -> Server: <Your Server> -> Application: <Your Application> -> MDSAppRuntime -> MDSAppRuntime -> Select the Operations tab and press the clearCache hyperlink.

Users should not receive a Portlet Consumer Error in the custom portal.

WCP servers must be restarted to restore Portlets communications.  Due to this issue, users cannot access portlets due to PortletBindingException.
