Content Presenter Task Flow Loses Document Association Upon Publish (Doc ID 2880842.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 16, 2023

Applies to:

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


Content Presenter task flow loses document association when published.

Adding and configuring Content Presenter to portal pages works correctly and shows in the page without issues. But when publishing the page draft, the document association with the Content Presenter is lost.
Issue happens randomly in different portals and pages.


The portal diagnostic log shows the following error:

MDS-00201: PDocument not found in MetadataStore : [store-type=DBMetadataStore app-name=webcenter repository-name=mds-SpacesDS partition-name=webcenter] ".
oracle.webcenter.portal.api.PortalRuntimeException: Encountered an MDS exception "oracle.mds.core.MetadataNotFoundException" with message "MDS-00013: no metadata found for metadata object "/oracle/webcenter/doclib/scopedMD/<PORTAL_ID>/<PAGE>.jspx/<CP_ID>.xml"


Note the portal id / page can change in the error depending on the portal or page where the issue was present.



The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

  1. Adds a Content Presenter task flow to a page.
  2. Choose Contents under a folder.
  3. Edit the Content Presenter and choose a folder with documents.
    All documents should appear as expected in the Content Presenter. 
  4. Go to Drafts page and publish the page.
  5. View the page.
    Notice that the data source (folder) is no longer associated to the Content Presenter.
    No documents appear.
