Last updated on MARCH 15, 2021

Applies to:

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


Due to the increased browser restrictions relating to Java and Java applets, WebCenter Content: Imaging has introduced a new Unified Viewer.  This Viewer does not require Java and has the functionality of the Basic and Advanced Viewers in one.

The functionality was added in Patch 32169495: WebCenter Content Bundle Patch

This was also introduced in the January 2021 edition of What's New for Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging.


The Unified Viewer is identical to the Default Viewer except that it provides a single toolbar in which both basic and advanced features are combined.  In order to add the Unified Viewer, follow the Readme instructions in Patch 32169495.  After the patch has been applied, administrators must set the ViewerAdfByDefault MBean attribute to true in the MBean configuration in order to enable it for users.

See the Configuring MBean Attributes section in Administering Oracle WebCenter Content: Imaging. Search for ViewerAdfByDefault. This MBean needs to set to True to enable the Unified Viewer.

Exact steps to set the MBean to true:

1) Login to Enterprise Manager. (machine:7001/em)
2) Click on "Weblogic Domain".
3) Under the the domain name, right-click on the Imaging Server name (IPM_server1), then select "System MBean Browser".
4) Expand "oracle.imaging" within the Applications Defined MBeans.
5) Expand "Server:IPM_server1 (or applicable server name).
6) Expand "config".
7) Click on "config".
8) Find the mbean ViewerAdfByDefault and set to True.
9) Select Apply.
