ISSUE

After an upgrade from 11g to 12c xParentFolders which is an OOTB placeholder field throws error when editing in profile that the field definition does not exist.

Note: This does not happen on non-upgraded 12.2.1.3.0 instance as the field xParentFolders is not available in drop-down menu to be added.


ERROR

A dialog box comes with an error stating - "The field definition for 'xParentFolders' cannot be found."

1. Upgrade a 11.1.1.8.0 instance to 11.1.1.9.0 following - How to Upgrade Previous Versions of WebCenter Content (WCC) 11g to 11.1.1.9.0 (Doc ID 2007796.1)
