Applies to:

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


Unable to edit pages in a Portal.
Attempting to edit pages causes the cursor to spin for a minute then returns to the pointer cursor like nothing ever happened.


The following error is observed in the Portal diagnostic log file:
