Applies to:

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


On : version, WebCenter Content Server using Framework Folders and Desktop Integration Suite, when we make a changes to a parent folder (e.g. add a role access list value) and then try to propagate the added value to subfolders that value does not appear in the subfolders. I followed the instructions in the documentation linked below.

The subfolders do not have "inhibit propagation" selected.

1. Open Windows Explorer
2. Click the WebCenter Content Servers icon located under Quick Access.
3. Double click the icon for the server, I am prompted to login and enter my admin credentials.
4. Navigate to the root of the folder Test (Brows Content > Enterprise Libraries > Test)
Within this folder are two subfolders called Invoices and Personnel Files.
4. I right click on Invoices and select Folder Information from the menu.
5. On the Folder Information window I select Edit and Folder Information.
The Folder Editing Form Window opens and a dialogue box appears a few seconds later with the below message

"Message from web page"
Stack overflow at line: 1

6. I select Ok and the dialogue box closes.
7. For the Role Access List metadata field I add a value with Read privileges.
8. Select Save.
The new value appears for the Role Access List field on the Folder Information page.
9. I close the folder information page.
10. I right click on the Invoices folder and select Propagate from the menu.
After a few seconds the Propagate window loads.
11. I select the check box next to Role Access List
A dialogue box appears with the below message.

"Message from web page"
Stack overflow at line: 1

12. I select OK and the box closes.
13. I select the check box next to Role Access List again because it did not get checked before.
14. I select Propagate the Propagate page closes and the folder or windows explorer appears to refresh.
15. I double click on the Invoices folder. which this folder are two subfolders named test1 and test2.
16. I select the Paid Folder and view the Folder Information in the preview pane.
