Symptoms

The content of many standard Portal tables (e.g. WWSEC_PERSON$, WWPOB_PAGE$ , WWNLS_STRINGS$ ) cannot be viewed using the Portal database user. In a standard Oracle Portal environment, we would normally expect the content of these tables to be visible to the Portal user.
Querying these tables returns no rows.
Also, accessing the Database Objects tab in the Portal Navigator shows 'No Objects Found'.
The content can only be viewed using the SYS user.
The Portal environment is working normally as expected.
