Unchecking the "Visibility" of Pages In a WebCenter Portal Makes the Pages Inaccessible Via Direct URL (Doc ID 2749594.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 05, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 12.2.1.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


Unchecking the "visibility" of pages in WebCenter Portal makes page inaccessible via direct URL.

Accessing the pages using direct URL results in the following error:


ERROR

Page Not Found...
The page you requested is not found.


STEPS

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Navigate to a Portal.
     
     
  2. Create a page.
    For example:
     
    Page Name: Test Page
     
     
  3. Edit the page and add an HTML component with some text like:

    "This is the Test Page."
     
     
  4. Get the Page Information.
     
     
  5. Note down the Direct URL from the Summary Tab.
    The URL should look like this:
     
    http://host:port/webcenter/portal/<portal-name>/pages_testpage
     
     
  6. Access the page using the direct URL you got in previous step.
    For this example:
     
    http://host:port/webcenter/portal/<portal-name>/pages_testpage
     
    You will see the page is displayed without issues.
     
  7. Edit the page and uncheck the "Visibility" check box in the Summary Tab in the Page Information.
     
     
  8. Access the page again using the direct URL.
    For this example:

    http://host:port/webcenter/portal/<portal-name>/pages_testpage

    Here you will get the following error:
     

    Page Not Found...
    The page you requested is not found.
