ADF Table Manage Columns Settings from Custom ADF Task Flow Are Not Retained After Selection In WebCenter Portal (Doc ID 2777632.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 01, 2022

Applies to:

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



When trying to hide / show columns in the Manage Columns property of an ADF Table from a custom ADF Task Flow, the selections are not saved and are reverted back to the original settings after logout and login back from WebCenter Portal or navigating away from the page and getting back in the same session.


Expect to see the pre-selected columns in the task flow after logout and login back from WebCenter Portal.



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


  1. Create a custom task flow with an ADF table.
    • Create an ADF application.
    • Create a simple ViewObject(VO) with a SearchCriteria on that VO.
    • Drag and Drop that Search Criteria as an af:query component on a .jsff page fragment.
    • Drag and Drop the same ViewObject as an af:table surrounded by a panel collection on the same .jsff page fragment.
    • Drop this page fragment on a ADF bounded task flow.
    • Deploy this ADF application as a shared library to the portal managed server(s).
  2. Extend WebCenter Portal to use the shared library with the custom ADF task flow.
  3. Test the Custom Task Flow.
    • Add the custom ADF task flow to a Portal Page.
    • View the portal.
    • Clicking on "View-> Columns" and hide some columns from the panel collection property.
    • Log-out from WebCenter Portal.
      You will see the columns you selected to hide are back.
      All selections are reset.

      The same happens if you navigate away from the page and come back.
